DAYTON (AP) -
Ohio's prisons agency is weighing the use of drones as a security measure keeping watch over corrections facility yards and fences.
The Department of Rehabilitation and Correction is taking public comments over the next month about the proposal for unmanned aerial vehicles at Lebanon Correctional Institution and Warren Correctional Institution in southwest Ohio.
Ed Voorhies, the agency's operations managing director, told the Dayton Daily News Wednesday the drones would augment existing security staff as opposed to replacing guards.
The agency is considering three camera-carrying options: a tethered helium balloon, a quad-copter and a fixed-wing vehicle.
Christopher Mabe (mayb), president of the union representing prison guards, doesn't oppose the concept but says evidence shows prison violence is best handled by more staff.
