Congress recently passed legislation paving the way
for what the FAA predicts will be somewhere in the
region of 30,000 drones in operation in US skies by 2020.

A national poll shows a third of Americans worry their privacy will suffer if drones like those used to track U.S. enemies overseas become the latest police tool for tracking suspected criminals at home.

A recent Associated Press-National Constitution Center found nearly half the public – 44 percent – supports police use of drones inside the U.S., while a significant minority – 36 percent – oppose law enforcement drones.

The public concern about possible loss of privacy due to police use of drones for surveillance: 35 percent are “extremely” or “very” concerned,” while 36 percent are “not too concerned” or “not concerned at all.”

The Federal Aviation Administration working on safety regulations that would clear the way for routine domestic drone flights by 2015.
