Berkeley council considers 'no drone zone'
BERKELEY, Calif. (KGO) -- Tuesday night, Berkeley City Council members considered a proposal to ban surveillance drones over city airspace.
The "no drone zone" proposal by Berkeley's peace and justice commission is in response to a growing number of cities using drones as a law enforcement tool.
The Alameda County Sheriff's Department recently considered using a $31,000 grant to buy a drone, but decided against it.
The Berkeley Police Department said it's never considered buying or using a drone.
