Jetpack protects law and order

The Jetpack has become more secure and lightweight, and has begun to comprise part of Special Services equipment. With its help, you can manoeuvre  in anurban environment and react quickly to emergency situations.

James Eck Oof, the gyroscope on this will need a lot of code. I believe it's possible today. Whether or not the military will have their hands on it by 2030 depends on the commercialization process speed. It's rare but could be useful in docking harbors where the police might need to move from boat to boat. This of course would be coupled with flying police cars/trucks. Flying trucks needed.

Ethan If we use these we can survive tsunamis earthquakes and other things instead of walking out and getting killed.

Will Longaphie I see law-enforcement as a combination of human (possibly with jetpacks... but only after extensive testing and safety considerations and anti-abuse precautions are put in place), robotic (which are already in use), and drone technologies. I also find it highly plausible that out of the three possibilities, one may overtake the other.

James Eck Will Longaphie, coupled with flying police cars/trucks, this could prove useful in places with multiple platforms. Ship harbors.

James Royle How long would the fuel/battery last? I do hope the authorities don't hog the technology and we can buy jet packs commercially (at least up to a certain thrust threshold). And if you're worried about security, well that's a whole not market of arboreal security that just started up!
