In general, the more drones that are used and seen by the public the more the public will just start viewing them as the new norm. Might take a generation to happen, but it will. But I think the NYPD might have an easier time dealing with the FAA and getting waivers than the rest of us, being they are a government department.

Hopefully, as Police Departments begin flying drones, there will develop a bit more comradery and understanding between police and those who fly legally under Part 107 and hobbyists who obey the regulations.

Here is the entire field news conference they held regarding their new UAV program. Not very polished, but still interesting. Unfortunately, during the first 1m30s of the video, the camera microphone also picks up a guy who is talking off camera, but that stops. The Q&A begins at 11m40s.
