LEO Guidance for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
While the FAA retains the responsibility for enforcing Federal Aviation Regulations, including those applicable to the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), the agency also recognizes that state and local Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) are often in the best position to deter, detect, immediately investigate, and, as appropriate, pursue enforcement actions to stop unauthorized or unsafe UAS operations. The agency's Law Enforcement Guidance for Suspected Unauthorized UAS Operations is intended to support the partnership between the FAA and LEAs in addressing these activities. This reference card is printable and designed to be carried in the field to answer basic questions and provide FAA contact information, nationwide, to support LEAs.
