I would like to make the following Freedom of Information request in relation to your organisations arrangements for drone filming and stills photography.

I would like to ask the following questions:


What are your current arrangements for hiring drone pilots or services within your organisation, ie do you use freelance, agency or do you have full time staff?


What criteria do you employ if you use freelance services when choosing drone pilots or services?


What is your average spend on drone pilots per day or service request?


How many times have you used the service of drone pilots in 2016, 2017 and 2018 to date?


The name and contact information of the person or persons responsible for hiring or procuring services of drone pilots within your organisation.



The States of Jersey Fire and Rescue Service (JFRS) has its own Aerial Reconnaissance Team. As well as undertaking their own work, they have provided a service for other departments, and also operated a department owned drone.


One department procured drone services through a local consultant with proven experience.


The service provided by JFRS is not re-charged to other States departments.

The external cost to the States of Jersey is approximately £10,450.00 over a three year period.
