Riverside Drug-Dealing-By-Drone Operation Endangered Child – California, United States
Riverside police say they really haven't seen anything like this before: An alleged drug operation that used a drone to deliver narcotics to customers waiting in a church parking lot. Once the drugs were delivered, neighbors say, the customers would drive by the home and throw money onto the front lawn. "Well it's new for us, at least," said Officer Ryan Railsback with the Riverside Police Department. Police also say a 9-year-old girl was living inside the home, where a wide range of illegal narcotics were scattered throughout, including in her bedroom. Neighbors say they had often observed unusual activity at the home on Chesapeake Lane. They suspected drugs and even warned the residents to stop. That's when they noticed the drones. Police were asked to investigate. "Our detectives did go out there and they conducted surveillance, which they do a lot of times when they get these tips," Railsback said. "And sure, enough they saw this drone flying, and what appeared to be this drone dropping or leaving some possible narcotics in a parking lot."

Dozens of Cameras, Two Miles of Fences, 100 Police Dogs – Minnesota, United States
Even before Minnesota’s bid to host Super Bowl LII was accepted, the Minneapolis police department was preparing for the event. Forty-one planning groups put together a security plan that will be seen in the sky and in animal form and will take advantage of advanced technology. Then there is the undercover operation. The Super Bowl is categorized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a Level One Special Event Assessment Rating, meaning it has the highest threat level to public safety. The rating also qualifies the city for federal resources. Super Bowl LII — it’s the 52nd; the NFL prefers to use Roman numerals — will use a larger deployment of federal resources than any past Super Bowl, according to Gerlicher. Hosting a Super Bowl isn’t just a one-day affair for public safety. Stringent security will begin Jan. 26, with slight increases through Super Bowl Sunday on Feb. 4, a full 10-day operational period.
