A drone police force is happening. If not now, then soon in the future. After all, if companies like Amazon can dream of a way to send you stuff via drone delivery, what's to stop law enforcement from creating drones to police the peace?

Alex Cornell created this vision of the future of security drones in his short Our Drone Future. The footage was shot with DJI Phantom drones of San Francisco and then superimposed security graphics to create a storyline of what the police drones would look like. Needless to say, they won't be pleasant.

Cornell explains:
In the near future, cities use semi-autonomous drones for urban security. Human officers monitor drone feeds remotely, and data reports are displayed with a detailed HUD and communicated via a simulated human voice (designed to mitigate discomfort with sentient drone technology). While the drones operate independently, they are "guided" by the human monitors, who can suggest alternate mission plans and ask questions.
On the flip side, no crime!
