The Pueblo Police Department UAV Unit, led by Sgt. Jason Smith, was formed in 2018 and is currently comprised of five operators and one Sergeant, FAA 107 Certified Pilots and one Sergeant. The unit has three Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) available to the various units of the Pueblo Police Department for a variety of missions. In addition, the unit is available to assist other City of Pueblo departments as well as other Law Enforcement Agencies. 
 The UAV Unit is a force multiplier for our department and provide the ability to search vast areas in a fraction of the time with far less manpower than using conventional search methods. The UAVs are used for crime scene documentation, area searches, and tactical operations.
