Drone cameras on cop cars to film encounters with suspects?

Grainy videos of cops and suspects are changing the way we think about police encounters. Imagine those scenes from a bird’s-eye view, recorded 30 feet in the air." That technology is now available.
"That’s the idea behind Blue Eyes, a camera-wielding drone that fastens to the top of a police cruiser and launches on command.
At a police stop, the drone can hover above the scene, recording the action and sending live images to headquarters. When the encounter ends, Blue Eyes returns to its landing pad to recharge and ship its video to the cloud."  This will be expensive, but it is an idea that is worth looking at.
