2018 – the year in which German police first used drones against potential perpetrators
Comments on Art. 47, Bavarian Police Law (PAG)
The new Bavarian police law breaks new legal ground regarding the use of police drones. Highly complex legal offenses will allow the Bavarian police in the future not only to monitor public events or gatherings at large or complex sites but also to specifically identify potential perpetrators. In addition, the use of drones over relevant “hot spots” such as red-light districts, railway stations, or meeting places for asylum seekers will be possible in defense against the newly outlined offense of “impending danger”
