Police Commissioner Dr. Carl Williams announced the news after a new string of bloody murders surfaced in the parish of St. James over the past weeks.
In February 2015, the then Commander of Area One, Assistant Commissioner Paul Ferguson said the use of drones was expected to become operational in six months.
However, not much has been heard of the proposed technology since. Dr Williams says drones are still being considered.
Meanwhile, the police commissioner says plans are still in train to have new CCTV cameras installed.
In January, the-then commanding officer for St. James, Senior Superintendent Steve McGregor revealed that only three of nineteen cameras installed in Montego Bay three years ago, were working effectively.
