The increase in drone ownership has led to questions about privacy and safety as those drones have buzzed commercial planes, peered over neighbor's hedges and into windows with mini-video cameras.  The counterbalance to drones is their usefulness in commercial and government uses such as mapping, observing, and investigating risky situations.  But this usefulness also brings its own challenges and issues.  At this session, participants will learn about some of the legal issues of drones and how local governments can proceed.
