Convince Your Boss Letter

  • Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics logo

    The integration of small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) has significantly increased the safety of law enforcement personnel and the efficiency in which investigations are completed. Conferences such as this promote networking and idea-sharing between industry leaders and real-world sUAS operators.

  • Tulsa Fire Department logo

    Automated systems help us save lives by increasing operational efficiency in day-to-day rescue operations. A conference like this, here in the heartland, presents a great opportunity to collaborate with other safety officials to deploy even more efficiently.

  • Osage Nation PD logo

    Public safety uses for drone technology continue to grow. I am learning about them as I start a drone program for my department. This conference will provide valuable information to help me build and operate an effective sUAS program. I also look forward to the networking opportunities and the chance to meet and collaborate with more experienced operators.
