The legislation would give federal law enforcement officers the legal authority to combat hostile drones by empowering the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice to identify, track, intercept, and damage or destroy (if and when necessary) any drones being operated for unlawful purposes. Instead, the bill would only allow local law enforcement to request federal help to take down hostile drones, which the feds may not always be in a position to do. State and local law enforcement could form similar working partnerships with the department when it comes to counter drone authority.
