ESTABLISHING BEST PRACTICES AND TRAINING FOR
LAW ENFORCEMENT UAS TEAMS
LEDA was created by law enforcement officers for law enforcement officers who operate unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) in the public safety arena. The group was initially created by a core group of law enforcement officers in the Pacific Northwest area who wanted to convene and create a set of best practices and guidelines for the use of UAS in law enforcement.
LEDA has grown exponentially over the last year to have over 500 law enforcement agencies nationally in their member rolls and are nearing 1000 law enforcement officer/public safety members. We focus primarily on training conference events throughout the country, but also strive to create solid digital content for our members to use to build solid UAS programs for their agencies. We seek to set the standard of training for law enforcement UAS operators throughout the country.
We take pride in the amount of knowledge contained within our membership and the passion for UAS among the group. We are continually seeking out new information, new training and the best technology to accomplish our mission in public safety.
