We are Law Enforcement and Military Professionals
California Penal Code 415: Disturbing the Peace.
If you are using the 415 Drone, it is because there is a disturbance in the peace that police officers strive so hard to protect and maintain. At 415 Engineering, we have designed and produced the tools to assist you in reclaiming the peace. We engineer solutions to the disturbances that shatter the peace we all endeavor to uphold for the citizens we serve.
The 415 Team is comprised of military and law enforcement professionals. Our collective experience led us to develop our drone surveillance system to enhance officer safety and situational awareness in a real world environment. Having real time visual surveillance of a situation before any officer is physically involved prevents tense and complex situations from escalating unnecessarily.
Our mission is to promote drone integration into every agency and offer technology and training that will protect not only officers but the citizens they serve.

Kevin makes drones, is a new dad and also works with an OC agency as their forensic tech analyst, teaches computer forensics at California State University Riverside, and is a drone SWAT pilot.
