Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said Thursday that he would seek assistance from privacy and civil rights groups before he would consider using two unmanned aerial systems the department received from the Seattle Police Department.

His comments came as some groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union, raised concerns about the use of drones by police. Beck said he’s aware of those concerns and wants to address them.

“I will not sacrifice public support for a piece of police equipment,” Beck said. “We’re going to thoroughly vet the public’s opinion on the use of the aerial surveillance platforms.”

The LAPD said it is putting together a team of privacy advocates that will include the ACLU to help craft policies the agency might use should it be allowed to deploy the drones.
