NEWSWEEK OpEd: Law Enforcement Needs the Tools to Fight Domestic Drone Dangers

Updated: Apr 27, 2023

In January 2015, a drone evaded detection by government radars and crashed on the White House lawn. About six months ago, the White House had to partially evacuate the same lawn after a drone allegedly entered a restricted area. Unlike in 2015, today the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Justice (DoJ) have the legislative authority to detect and mitigate these types of drone threats—at least for now. That authority, originally scheduled to sunset in October but temporarily extended, hangs in the balance. Unless Congress acts fast, our nation's skies may become unprotected.

And that's a problem. Learn why in this Newsweek OpEd
