Mountain city in Peru sends up drones against crime

Lima: A city in Peru`s Andes is deploying a fleet of drones to crack down on crime, authorities have said.

The "eagle eye" trial project is putting five drones in Huancayo`s skies at a total cost of USD 50,000 "to help police identify criminals," said mayor Dimas Aliaga yesterday.
The mayor said private companies were funding the trial and that an operations center would be opened in the city of about 323,000. He did not name the companies.
"Each drone is linked (to the operations center) and the image it is transmitting can be sent live to the Google Glass of a police officer and the monitors at the operations center," Aliaga said.

Crime is a top concern for Peru`s 30 million people. According to a January Ipsos poll, 89 per cent feel unsafe when they leave their homes.
