Los Angeles, CA., Nov. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Draganfly Inc. (NASDAQ: DPRO) (CSE: DPRO) (FSE: 3U8) (“Draganfly” or the “Company”), an award-winning, industry-leading drone solutions and systems developer, announced today that the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office in Eastpoint, Florida has selected Draganfly’s Vital Intelligence Smart Vital assessment platform for its 911 Communications Center. The technology will be used to screen employees before shifts.
The Sheriff’s Office is the primary law enforcement agency for Franklin County, Florida. In addition to providing law enforcement services, the Sheriff’s Office also maintains the county jail and provides security for the county’s courts.
Draganfly’s Smart Vital system monitors, with voluntary consent, vital signs including, heart rate, respiratory rate, temperature, and blood oxygen content (SpO2). The system does not register any personal data of the individual being screened.
According to the Officer Down Memorial Page, over 460 U.S. law enforcement officials have died from COVID-19 infections tied to their work since the beginning of the pandemic. Outpacing gunfire, the virus has become the most common cause of duty-related deaths in 2020 and 2021.
“Our mission is to create a safer Franklin County. We are dedicated to serving the public by contributing to the quality of life and fostering a vibrant community for all individuals. Draganfly’s Smart Vital system allows us to add another layer of permanent health security to our operations,” said A.J. “Tony” Smith, Sheriff of Franklin County.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to work with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office to provide a safe environment for employees. Our Vital Intelligence technology is enabling public facilities to better respond to current and rapidly evolving public health and safety threats,” said Cameron Chell, CEO of Draganfly.
The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office is the latest law enforcement agency to integrate Draganfly’s Vital Intelligence Smart Vital assessment platform into its existing operations.
