ESTABLISHING BEST PRACTICES AND TRAINING FOR
LAW ENFORCEMENT UAS TEAMS
LEDA is comprised of law enforcement officers with a passion and expertise in aviation, both manned and unmanned. LEDA specializes in creating a solid training foundation for agencies to build on with their UAS programs, at whatever stage the agency is currently.
LEDA instructors put on solid training quarterly for agencies throughout the region to create best practices, safety management systems, legal updates, and law enforcement scenario-based training. Members are also linked in with a large network of LE UAS pilots for questions at any time.
LEDA is proud to be sponsored by solid drone platforms, software development companies and distributors that have a strong desire to support the LE UAS community. LEDA is also looking to partner with your company if you have that same desire.
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 cops 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.
Over the years, we have developed a sense of camaraderie amongst the over 35 law enforcement agencies we have partnered with in the Pacific Northwest region. LEDA's members meet each quarter for an all day training in different locations throughout the region. Those trainings are meant to refine us as a community and set a standard of safety within the LE UAS culture.
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.
