Texas police department puts 'eyes in the sky' with unmanned aircraft

From kens5.com:
A Texas police department is one of first to experiment with unmanned aircraft.

The Arlington Police Department is experimenting with two battery-operated, remote-controlled air crafts.

They are flying them over a restricted airspace near Lake Arlington Dam, away from populated areas.

The aircrafts weigh only 11 pounds and are 20 inches long, and come equipped with cameras that shoot video and pictures.

Arlington Police Chief Theron Bowman says they would be a great asset to the city, but some residents are calling it an invasion of privacy.
