Assisting in Monitoring in UAS Operations said FAA

FAA has stated that they have asked the law enforcement community for helping them in monitoring the operation of unmanned aircraft (UAS). 

According to the explanation of the agency, "The proliferation of small, relatively inexpensive unmanned aircraft (UAS) presents a challenge in identifying people who don't follow the rules of the air or who endanger the nation's airspace." The agency also
released guidance to the law enforcement community explaining the legal formalities of FAA’s oversight of aviation safety in the U.S. including UAS operations. The guidance describes how UAS and model aircraft can be operated legally, and the options for legal enforcement actions against unauthorized or unsafe UAS operators.
FAA noted that its goal "is to promote voluntary compliance by educating individual UAS operators about how they can operate safely under current regulations and laws, but the guidance makes clear the agency's authority to pursue legal enforcement action against persons who endanger the safety of the National Airspace System.
