    We showed you some of the new gadgets Lincolnshire Police and surrounding forces have access for the relaunch of Operation Galileo.

    A drone was among them, here's what the police hope it'll be able to help them with:

    Quote Message: It may be a deterrent if we turn up and deploy a drone, these people realise that they'll struggle to escape like with a helicopter. It's also great for photography, if we can't see them, if they're hiding up trees then a drone may be able to spot them easier than a officer on the ground." from PC Nick Willey Wildlife and rural crime officer
