INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana police agencies are proceeding with caution when it comes to using drones.

The Greenfield Police Department bought a drone last summer and has used it once to take aerial photographs of a traffic accident. But the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is holding off until the rules of drone use are clear.

Indianapolis City-County Councilman Zach Adamson tells The Indianapolis Star he’s consulted Public Safety Director Troy Riggs about a resolution creating a study committee to develop rules for drone use.

Police say drones could help protect SWAT teams and assist with crowd control and in crash investigations. But civil-rights groups say they also could be used to illegally collect evidence.
