The Park City Police Department Uses Drones to Help Locate Illegal Campers on Masonic Hill

To save manhours, the Park City Police Department has started using drones to follow up on people illegally camping on the Masonic Hill.

Masonic Hill - above the Prospector neighborhood - has become a home for more than just the wildlife. The Park City Police Department has had to issue notices to vacate to a homeless man who simply moves his camp to a new location. Rather than sending officers up the hill in search of people illegally setting up camp – they’re employing drones. KPCW’s Melissa Allison brings us the story.
