How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Government Report Questions Efficiency of Drones, Says Taxpayers Spent $12,255 Per Mile

Drones have long been criticized by privacy advocates as an overreach of law  enforcement. 

Turns out, they’re also wildly expensive to operate, according to a report by the Inspector General, The Washington Post writes.

CBP spent at least $62.5 million on drones – or about $12,255 per (flight) mile. That is five times the cost estimated by CBP.

The Post wrote that the report could erode the public’s trust in drones and undermine a more expansive program.

Very few arrests were made with the assistance of drones, the report added.
