Chicago alderman launches pre-emptive strike against drones

Chicago alderman Scott Waguespack (32nd Ward) has introduced two city ordinances to prevent or limit the potential use of drones by local law enforcement. The Chicago Sun-Times reported yesterday on the measures, the first of which would impose a moratorium on the use of drones through 2018. The second would limit the use of drones to emergency situations only, and prevent them being used to collect personal information, from being weaponized or used for crowd control, or to establish probable cause for further search or seizure. 

The moratorium bill can be found on the city’s legislative information center here. The restriction/limitations bill can be found here
