Policing units on the Belgian coast have deployed three drones to help support work within the area.
According to a police spokesperson, the primary role of the drone will be to track irregular arrivals and look out for human trafficking.
Belgian news source, RTBF, detailed how the drones will be employed by the Westkust police zone.
The team will then use the UAVs to fly over the twelve-kilometre strip between the resort towns of Nieuwpoort and De Panne.
The force also said that it will employ the drones to find children lost at the beach, support searches for missing people and avert drownings.
