In 2019 the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Team (U.A.S.T.) was created with five members of the Sheriff's Office. 

The team is licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration as Unmanned Aircraft System Pilots, and its purpose is to utilize unmanned aircraft technology to facilitate safer, more efficient, and improved public safety services. The program is regulated by the FAA. Unmanned Aircraft Systems are used for the following:
