That should be more like "Take our drones! For an $82,000 savings to our budget!"
I'm glad we're not paying for these things.

Go to the model airplane field at Flaming Geyser, probably some retired Boeing engineers would snap them up.

Yeah, I'm with @1: The headline clearly implies (falsely) that SPD is losing the value of the drones.

A shame they couldn't have given them to UW, or maybe Olympic National Park, for scientific stuff.

The important thing is that the military contractor who provided these model airplanes at a 10x markup doesn't have to issue a refund.

"...checked baggage" ?? Why can't they fly themselves there?

@6: The assistant chief wanted a couple of days in L.A. with airfare paid? (Is the "Seattle Police Foundation" one of those organizations that robo-calls asking for donations to the widows-and-orphans fund?)

I'm guessing sports tix were involved ...

I guess this means Skynet will become self aware in LA instead of Seattle. /s
