Documents Reveal US Marshals Using Spy Drones

Steve Watson Feb 28, 2013

Documents obtained by the ACLU have revealed that  the U.S. Marshals Service has experimented with using drones for domestic  surveillance.

The documents, available on the ACLU website, were released via a Freedom of Information Act  request.

The rights groups says that although the Marshals  Service admitted it had found 30 pages of information pertaining to its use of  drones, it only actual handed over two, which were heavily redacted, containing  only two short paragraphs of visible information.

Under the heading “Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, Man-Portable (UAV) Program,” an agency document overview states:

“USMS Technical Operations Group’s UAV Program provides a highly portable, rapidly deployable overhead collection device that will provide a multi-role surveillance platform to assist in [redacted] detection of targets.”


A further document reads:

“This developmental program is designed to provide [redacted] in support of TOG [Technical Operations Group] investigations and operations. This surveillance solution can be deployed during [multiple redactions] to support ongoing tactical operations.”
