China tackles illegal gambling using drones


The Chinese police now has drones to work with while combating illegal gambling in the country. According to a Chinese daily People’s Daily Online, the drones will be used like eyes in the sky which survey the territory and hunt for well-hidden gambling spots.

China already has a strict gambling ban in the mainland. The punishment for operating any kind of gambling dens is up to 10 years of jailtime and those who indulge in gambling could face up to 3 years in confinement. With this deterrent, illegal gambling still runs rampant and hence the drone measures.

Since last year, the Chinese authorities have raided a number of mobile casinos with the drones to keep gambling from ‘corrupting the spiritual civilization of society.’ Last July saw a total of 31 persons arrested in Luchuan County in Guangxi Province after police used drones to locate the place.

One particular case happened recently where enforcers were determined to shut down a gambling den in a remote wilderness area in Anhui Province. The gambling ring was busted and 35 arrested, all with the help of these aerial vehicles.

Of the 35 arrested, 13 were caught in pursuit. Heading off into the woods, the drone stayed on top of them and guided the police throughout the run. According to the Shushan Branch of the Hefei Public Security Bureau, the above operation used to continuously change location in order to dodge detection, but drones proved of much help for tracking them.

The next avenue for law enforcers is obviously to explore assault options on drones themselves.  This could even downsize the entire department to miniscule number of humans. AI/automation is the future for now and the Chinese police, given its technological prowess, would be the first ones to implement this.
