The rapid development of drone technology presents significant commercial and leisure opportunities. However, drones can also be used to facilitate and commit crimes, and if flown recklessly or negligently can pose a risk to public safety.
The UK Counter-Unmanned Aircraft Strategy sets out our approach to mitigating the highest-harm risks to the UK resulting from the illegal use of aerial drones.
- facilitating terrorist attacks
- facilitating crime, especially in our prisons
- disrupting critical national infrastructure (CNI)
