New U.S. DOJ Guidance for Counter-UAS Technology and What It Means for Site Security

Monday, June 1st

About the Session


In 2018, Congress and President Trump granted the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security new legal authorities to employ counter-UAS measures to perform certain missions and protect certain critical assets against unauthorized drones. Since the legislative authorization, U.S. Attorney General William Barr recently issued guidance for the DOJ’s use of counter-drone authorities and technologies, ensuring that the department continues to carry out its law enforcement and national security missions while respecting individuals' privacy, civil rights and civil liberties. This session will provide update on the current guidance and next steps for counter-drone technology implementations.
