Ron ShelnuttPolice Officer
Indianapolis, USA

“Police officer trains other officers in public safety ”

My name is Ron Shelnutt. I'm a full time police officer with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. I have ownded a DJI Vision + for a year now. I have done some filming for some companies and realistate agents over the last year as a part time job. I am currantly working with the AMA here in America on developing a cerification class for police officers, fire fighters and other first responders on flying and operating drones safly for thier cities or towns. I am wanting to recommend the DJI Inspire 1 for all who will be attending classes. The DJI Inspire 1 looks like it has all of the requirments that those of us in Public Safety would need. One of our officers, Perry Renn, was killed in the line of duty last year. The police department asked me to film it with my drone and I did. The family of offiecr Renn couldn't believe how nice the video was and thanked me for doing it for them. They told me that, that day was such a blur to them because of all that was going on around them. The video link listed in this story is of that video. It was and still is the first and only video of a police officers funeral completely filmed using a drone. And it was a DJI drone, a Vision+. I own a small aerial video company called RS Aerial Media and as a aerial videographer/photographer I can't wait to try the Inspire 1. From all I have seen online it looks amazing. I hope to get more busines in the field of aerial videographer/photographer and when I do I would love to move up to the Inspire 1.
