Many countries have imposed nationwide lockdowns in order to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. From drones and helicopters in the sky, to officers patrolling along the streets, the police forces have become very creative in the variety of methods to encourage citizens to comply with the limitations of public movement.
In most cases, the police have engaged many of the units to assist with crowd control. Patrol officers, municipal police headquarters, border police, traffic police and others are working together in the coordinated efforts. Police helicopters perform daily air patrols from up above, observing public areas, beaches, and shopping centers.
When a police pilot identifies an illegal gathering, the police teams on the ground are notified and sent to the relevant area. Sometimes police warnings are communicated from the air to disband any illegal activities.
