SEATTLE  -- The Seattle Police Department is one of the first in the nation to receive permission from the federal government to start using drones.

The department is drafting a policy on how it will use the remote control aerial vehicles.

The public will have a chance to see one of the drones and comment at a question and answer session Thursday night at 6 p.m. at the Garfield Community Center, 2323 E. Cherry St.

Police have said they expect to use drones in search and rescue, accidents and natural disasters, and unusual crime scenes.
