Just got DJI Phantom 4.  Have about 6 hours flying it.  I also have a private pilot license with about 3500 hours.  Interested in part-time to-start opportunities utilizing my UAV.  Been a State Police Officer for about 10 years in the Great State of Texas.  Would love to hear from folks with useful tips.  Thanks and have a great day.

Hey Bobh. Joe here, former police officer, retired Marine. We are a 333 approved w/COA (and working on another COA for our area (Jackson, MS). Are you looking at doing drone work for the state? I have found that in talking to several police departments in AL and MS that there are SEVERAL flying missions (and getting drug busts, etc. from the drone flights) but they are not approved by the FAA as a municipality needs to be (going to be a problem for them if it goes to court). Sooooo our plans are to educate via letters, personal visits to PD (as well as fire departments and county FEMA's) and explain how to get approved and in the mean time help them with their paperwork of being FAA approved and do contract work for them until they get approved, or if they don't want to go that route to continue to be a contract company for these type entities. We are using the Phantom 3 Pro but look forward to the Phan 4 once we get approved for it. We are doing a amendment to our 333 to get that approval. Good luck to you in your new endevors. PS. Where your vest!!!!!!!!!!
