The Municipality of Leamington has begun to use drone technology to enhance its by-law enforcement services by collecting information and evidence from a bird’s-eye view.

The Municipality says that their By-law Enforcement division will utilize a drone, where authorized by law, to capture by-law infractions and gather evidence related to property standards/land maintenance issues and illegal cannabis facilities.

“We are always looking for ways to utilize technology to enhance our service delivery,” said Peter Neufeld, Chief Administrative Officer. “The key component of drone use for the Municipality is officer safety, as they can gather evidence more efficiently without having to enter the property on foot.”

The Municipality says they plan to expand the use of the drones to its Fire and Building Services departments later this year.
