Greetings fellow pilots,

I am a retired chief of police (32 years) & got into UAVs in 2015, sole owner of Martinez Aerial in Casa Grande, AZ. Hold a commercial pilot certificate and 107. Early in 2017 I was asked by a police chief in a city of 50K if I would assist the agency in starting their UAS unit. I trained their 6 PD pilots to pass their 107 and now serve as a volunteer chief pilot. Happy to be here...

Hello Luis, this is the Las Vegas Police using the Typhoon H. You may have seen this already
Las Vegas police drones will monitor New Year’s Eve crowds

My son was with the Orange County Sheriff in Central Florida, now a police officer at a private college Sarasota, Fl. Less stress for him and his wife is happier.

Welcome Luis,

I’m from Maricopa, just west of you. I would love to get together with you for a cup of coffee anytime you are up this way, I’m buying. I’m also a (former). Private pilot and hold the 107, doing primarily real estate photography.

Hi guys, I am in Marana and would enjoy heading up and meeting sometime if you decide to get together to fly or for a cup of coffee!

Luis, a friend from my High Power Rocketry days retired from the Pinal County Sherriff's dept. last year. Did you have any interaction with that department?

Regards, Craig
