The small aircraft will be used for searches, investigating accident scenes, special events, and other applications.

The drone was purchased using drug forfeiture money, so it cost local taxpayers nothing.

The sheriff suggests local residents watch the Fayette County Sheriff's Facebook page for live feeds using the new drone.
