This Cybersecurity Pro Running for Philly City Council Would Introduce a Drone Force for Policing

Would it ever feel normal to be walking down the street and know there is always a drone observing?

The latest would-be politician from a STEM background, City Council At-Large candidate Jalon Alexander, wants to see a fleet of drones assisting the Philadelphia Police Department, an idea he outlined in a proposal called Drone Force Philly.

The Democrat grew up in Strawberry Mansion, and went on to study security and intelligence studies at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. Now, he’s a cybersecurity law pro who told he primarily works with federal government agencies; his LinkedIn says he’s currently a business development and capture manager with Virginia’s Makpar Corporation.
