Take advantage of Skydio’s rapid deployment to gain immediate situational awareness for the initial responders on scene.
Skydio drones are durable, portable, and easily deployable in rugged environments thanks to hand launch and recovery.
Support your SRT team with drone solutions that can operate in obstacle rich environments to see in places invisible from above.
Reduce your time to capture and increase the accuracy of your scene reconstruction using Skydio 3D Scan.

Learn the benefits of using autonomous navigation and capture drones for crime and accident scene documentation.
Boots on the ground methods of situational awareness can only provide so much information about the scene.
While Manual drones have demonstrated immense value for Law Enforcement thus far, excessive pilot training times and lack of advanced built-in safety procedures leave room for improvement.
Safer to Operate
Fly with confidence in obstacle rich environments thanks to Skydio Autonomy Enterprise.
Easier to Train and Scale
Enable individual first responders to immediately gather situational awareness, lock down perimeters, identify suspects, and locate missing persons.
Higher Quality Data
Intelligent AI-powered autonomy allows crime and traffic scene teams to capture data at their precise specifications.
Fly at a set distance and height from either the Skydio Enterprise Controller or the Skydio Beacon while on the move — all without having to manually operate the drone.
Provide improved communication and context with team members in chaotic or emergency situations in real-time.
Skydio drones with Axon Air, Axon Evidence, and Axon Respond bring a paradigm shift in how agencies leverage drones for situational awareness and evidence management.Learn More
Watch “The Hostage” to see how Skydio drones can be used to de-escalate hostile scenes with the help of Skydio Autonomy, allowing the pilot to smoothly navigate obstacle-rich environments and adjust their vantage point to keep eyes on the scene.

This model was captured autonomously by Skydio 2 with 3D Scan to document a mock accident scene, which was then processed in Bentley to generate the 3D model. The model required 422 photos at a 2.2 mm GSD and was captured in 17.5 minutes flight time.
If a suspect runs through a backyard, trying to fly a drone in between buildings, over fences, the Skydio unit definitely helped us out with that.”

In November, we added 16 Skydio X2E drones to be used exclusively by our patrol officers. Most of the operators were new pilots... It has been an overwhelming success."

Tactical BVLOS operations approval enables first responders to fly beyond visual range, cover much greater distances, collect more data with fewer deployments, and can keep operators out of dangerous situations.
“Close Proximity, Low Altitude flights will enable our drone teams to respond more quickly and efficiently to emergencies—enhancing the safety of the public and our officers. The Skydio Autonomy system enables officers to fly a drone safely and reliably in emergency situations without fear of crashing.”
