US: Drones patrol lockdown in Elizabeth, New Jersey


Drone manufacturer DJI has loaned five drones equipped with voice capabilities and sirens to the US town of Elizabeth, New Jersey for use to patrol public areas and warn violators of the state's lockdown rules. The drones' messages are recordings of the mayor telling people to stop gathering, disperse, and go home. Police have the power to fine violators up to $1,000.
