Jason Chapman, a 29-year-old Union Institute & University enrollment counselor, remembers tailgating before a Cincinnati Bengals game last year. He was with his friends, having a great time and eating lots of food. There were plenty of leftovers and when spotting some people in need on the other side of the fence he decided to offer them a plate of food.
Chapman was apprehensive. What if they were offended by the offer of food? What if fellow tailgaters disapproved of the generosity?
The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction is considering the use of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) to help patrol the grounds surrounding two Warren County prisons.
In a release, the state says:
"UAS technology could add an additional layer of security to help maintain the safety of the surrounding community and the prisons by bolstering existing perimeter security, preventing and detecting attempts of contraband entering the prison, and enhancing the monitoring of inmates who are approved to work outside the secure perimeter of the prison. "
