Our International Stolen Drone Database is a powerful initiative designed to safeguard the interests of drone owners across nations. This innovative database serves as a centralised hub where crucial information about stolen drones is collected, organised, and shared with law enforcement agencies and counter drone sensors. Here’s what you need to know:
The International Stolen Drone Database is a comprehensive repository that compiles data on stolen drones reported by victims like you. It consolidates this information into a secure and accessible platform, streamlining the process of reporting and tracking stolen drones.
Through extensive Freedom of Information (FOI) requests to all 46 Police forces in the UK, it’s clear from the data provided that there’s room for improvement in foreseeing, organising, sharing and ensuring uniformity in the recording of stolen drone data. This gap not only affects the victims but also poses challenges for Law Enforcement in tracing and investigating offenders. These efforts can see substantial improvement with the invaluable support that the drone community is uniquely positioned to provide.
Additional details regarding the FOI requests and the received returns are available HERE:
- Recovery Assistance: If your drone is stolen, having its details in our database greatly increases the chances of recovery. Law enforcement agencies nationwide can access this resource to identify stolen drones and return them to their rightful owners.
- Community Safety: By reporting stolen drones, you contribute to the safety of the entire drone community. Patterns and trends in drone thefts become apparent, enabling law enforcement to take proactive measures.
- Accountability: The database promotes responsible drone ownership. It encourages owners to report thefts promptly, reinforcing a culture of accountability within the drone community.
- Report Your Stolen Drone: If your drone is stolen, report the incident to your local police, ensuring you obtain an official incident number and subsequent case / crime number or report.
- Submit to the Database: Return to our website and submit your stolen drone’s details, including make, model, and any unique identifiers. This information is then added to the National Stolen Drone Database.
- Collaboration: We collaborate closely with law enforcement agencies and counter drone manufacturers to facilitate the recovery of stolen drones. The database serves as a vital resource for both drone owners and authorities.
