Seattle cops want more drones to match the ones it doesn't use

Seattle police want to spend at least $150,000 on more drone aircraft—even though they've got two they don't use.

Beyond conducting limited training exercises, SPD has never deployed the two drones it purchased in 2010 for $82,000. Furthermore, SPD department has no clear policy outlining how drones can be deployed in the field.

You just know that the chief of police sits there all day looking at Tactical Pens on Amazon, even though he's already got one in his pencil case.
