The sheriff of Alameda County wants to go high high tech.
Sheriff Gregory Ahern is seeking a grant to acquire a four-pound drone that could provide live video or an infrared device to track the heat of bodies, fires … and possibly the lights of indoor pot-growing operations.
The device, which would cost $50,000 to $100,000, would be remotely controlled by an operator on the ground and hover over crime or fire scenes.
