Bandys/Bunker Hill CTE Students Learn about Drones in Law Enforcement

Catawba County Schools
Press Release

Bandys and Bunker Hill High School Career Technical Education (CTE) Drone I classes met collaboratively on Thursday morning (Oct. 20th) to learn more about drone technology and its uses in the field of law enforcement.

Senior Investigator Brandon Styers, Catawba County Sheriff's Office: Crime Scene Investigator / Digital Forensics / NCICAC Task Force, discussed drone use in the classroom and then provided a demonstration for approximately 78 students from the two schools at Bandys High School.

The Catawba County Sheriff’s Office Drone task force consists of more than 20 members. Students had the opportunity to learn how drone technology is used through a variety of activities, including Crime Scene Scenarios. According to the task force, drone technology in law enforcement saves time in search and rescue through the use of infrared and is much less expensive than using helicopters. Drones also provide a comprehensive view of a crime scene, often being used to photograph in areas that are unsafe for humans while telling the entire story of a scene in one shot. This unique learning opportunity was the brainchild of Bandys CTE Drone Teacher Diane McPherson.
