Beginning in 1995, the FBI started experimenting with drones as a tool for video surveillance.

But according to the Verge, federal authorities didn’t initially believe the drones were viable options.

Now, the FBI appears to be building a drone program, according to the Verge.

Records obtained by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics show that the FBI’s first “operational drone deployment” was in October 2006.

Since then, the FBI has slowly but steadily moved toward using drones.
