DHS to start testing drones over US for 'public safety"

DHS pilots will fly drones after as little as one day of training and this is intended to increase public safety?

Source: Russia Today

The Department of Homeland Security will be testing a variety of drones in US air space and their solicitation request requires that all drones be equipped with Electro-Optical/Infra-Red sensors, as well as the technology to sniff out certain chemicals from thousands of feet from above. The UAV must also have an integrated laser designator, can be hand-launched by a single person and must be able to be remotely managed by a pilot with only one day of training.
