The Muskogee County Sheriff’s Office received a drone bought with grant money from the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office.

Sheriff Rob Frazier showed off the new drone yesterday. The drone was ordered several weeks ago after the sheriff’s office received grant money from the Oklahoma attorney general’s office.

The drone, a DJI Mavic Pro Platinum, is equipped with a Boson 320 forward looking infrared camera, a 1080p 4K recording camera on a gimbal, a DVR for recording thermal and video simultaneously, a 7-inch LCD monitor that can display thermal images in real time.

The drone has built-in obstacle avoidance, a flight time of about 27 minutes, and can travel up to 2 1/4 miles.

The sheriff’s office began the process of obtaining a drone after it became clear it would benefit public safety of Muskogee County. The drone can assist in search and rescue, manhunts, missing persons cases, and many other aspects of public safety, according to Nick Mahoney of the sheriff’s office.

“The ability to deploy a drone, and especially a drone with thermal imaging gives the sheriff’s office the ability to search an area, search for suspects or escapees, and look for missing children or persons more effectively and safely than we could before,” Frazier said. “With the grant funds we were able to get the drone, extra batteries, a carrying case and some other needed accessories.”

The drone was custom built and the vendor discounted the price to help the sheriff’s office stay under budget.

Deputies are currently enrolled into a drone school, where they will become licensed by the FAA to fly and operate the drone.
