Queensland cops to be armed with anti-drone guns during Commonwealth Games this month


Queensland police will be packing some serious heat during the Commonwealth Games this month as authorities will be equipped with technology used to combat the Islamic State terror group in the Middle East, news.com.au has reported.

Police will have guns capable of shooting drones out of the sky with technology from a company named DroneShield, along the lines of similar devices that were used to protect the skies over sporting events in the United States, including the 2017 Ironman World Championship in Hawaii and the Boston Marathon, news.com.au reported.

DroneShield says its technology has been used by military forces in the Middle East to combat IS.

Queensland police have confirmed they will be using the drone guns to help protect fans at the sporting event while the Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski urged the public to “leave your drone at home” during the event.
