Queensland Police Service (QPS) to Use DroneGun During XXI Commonwealth Games

Queensland Police Logo“The QPS is pleased to announce that DroneShield will provide multiple units of its DroneGunTM product to be utilized by Queensland Police Service during the XXI Commonwealth Games in Queensland in April 2018.

Given the developments in unmanned technologies, and the trends in the nefarious uses of such technologies overseas, security agencies and militaries worldwide are faced with the need to provide aerial security at all high profile events, in addition to conventional security.

The Commonwealth Games event is a pre-eminent gathering of approximately 6,600 athletes from approximately 70 countries.

Consequently, security agencies are providing the highest level of security at the event.

The use of this equipment by the QPS is an indication of the Company’s successful track record of protecting mass events, including the most recent 2017 IRONMAN World Championship and the Boston Marathon for three years running.
