Police chief uses drone to send desserts to village guards in Turkey’s east
BİTLİSA police chief in eastern Turkey has found an original use for unmanned aerial vehicles, using drones to send desserts to village guards on duty.
Bitlis police chief Fatih Kaya sent a batch of delicious desserts in order to cheer up remote village guards on Oct. 28.
Kaya got the idea after visiting a police control point in the Arıcılık region between Bitlis and the southeastern province of Diyarbakır.
After being briefed about ongoing operations against the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), Kaya decided to offer deserts to security officers at the post.
He then came up with the idea of offering more desserts to village guards posted to a remote nearby site as part of anti-PKK operations, sending a sweet treat to the village guards using a drone.
The village guards and the police chief reportedly spoke on the phone after the desserts were delivered to express mutual thanks.
