    DRONE

    We are public servants using a tool that is ever changing for the use of public safety. This course is not a certification; it was set-up to assist and give Departments the knowledge to begin the process of equipping Drones in the field.  Through this course you will learn Definitions such as a Pilot in Command,Spotters, and Temporary flight restrictions.  You will learn how to file NOTAMS and how to register your agency’s drone. We will also assist you with the creation of department policy and flight logs. You will learn what a part 107 certificate is and how to obtain it.  The 107 preparation will cover: Airspace, flight restrictions, operation requirements, aviation weather, weather effects of UAS, emergency procedures, crew management, radio communication, physiological factors, aeronautical decision making, airport operations, Pre-flight inspections, and many other similar topics.  At the end of the course you should take back the knowledge to test for the part 107 certificate.  You will be able to advise your department’s administration on the requirements to deploy drones safely and legally.

    Instructors: Chris Olson and Jonathon Bigham

While with the SAR Unit, he learned swift water rescue techniques, wilderness survival and basic SAR techniques.

    After four years with Desoto County Search and Rescue he joined the Horn Lake Police Explorers.  While at Horn Lake he observed the life of a patrolman on the streets during ride-alongs.  Johnathon left Horn Lake and became an employee of the Desoto County Jail, where he was a jailor.  After a year in the jail, he was promoted to patrol and became a certified officer.
