Agents can use the app for help with maintaining drone rules




Agents have had an app on their service smartphone since this week that they can use to enforce the rules on drones. The app helps them determine if there is a criminal offense.

Agents can go through a number of steps when they see a drone, the first of which is related to the location. Then the agents have to answer questions about the situation, after which the app gives advice. This allows the agent to assess whether there is a criminal offense.

Steef Boonstra of the aviation police says to NH News that many police officers in the street had too little knowledge about regulations concerning drones, while the number of incidents is increasing. He hopes that the app will ensure an unambiguous approach.

According to Air Traffic Control the Netherlands, in the first six months of 2018, the number of drone reports around Schiphol actually decreased to 14. There were 36 drone reports around Schiphol in the whole of 2017. “It seems to be less everywhere, it could be that people are more aware of it,” says Frank van der Voort of LVNL.
