In Japan’s capital Tokyo, police is getting its own drone squad to combat the menace of illegal drones in high-security areas. So how does this work?

In order to stop private drones from flying over sensitive locations in Japan, such as airports, government buildings, etc, the police will send out their own larger drones but with nets attached to them, which will help capture these other drones.

According to a report in The Telegraph UK, the camera-equipped drones will be controlled by Japan’s riot police, and the police-drones will also warn the suspicious private drone before they bring them down.

The report says, that the police drones go into use this month and more will be rolled out by February.

The reason for this drone-scare is the discovery of a drone carrying “trace amounts of radioactive caesium” that was found on top of the PM’s office in April. Police had later arrested one man in connection with this radioactive drone.
