Baltimore Sun: Aerial surveillance by Baltimore police has promise, should be studied more, report concludes by Kevin Rector:

Footage collected as part of a secret aerial surveillance program in Baltimore last year supplied police with hundreds of potential leads in an array of crimes and significantly advanced investigations of seven shootings and three homicides, according to a new analysis of the program.

In one unidentified homicide case, the footage shot from a high-flying plane helped police identify four “primary people or vehicles” at the scene, pointing investigators to nearby ground-level cameras that provided additional suspects and witnesses, the report found.
