It was not too long ago when drones were discussed we would often think of military use or large commercial type applications. However, today drones are now in the hands of hobbyists who frequently use the devices for taking aerial pictures and shooting unique video footage. Not to mention law enforcement use them to monitor traffic conditions, and some companies are even starting to deliver packages in busy cities.
Criminals have now set their sights on these easily purchased devices due to their many features, including carrying payloads, flying great distances, and their anonymity. Drones have even been used by criminals to commit stalking crimes by using them to spy on their victims. With more than 770,000 registered drones in the United States alone, the issue of drone misuse has become a part of regular news stories and is quickly getting out of control.
