  Coachella using army of drones, police to boost security in wake of Las Vegas massacre LOS ANGELES - A small fleet of drones began to buzz overhead Thursday monitoring traffic and perimeters for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. With 125,000 people expected daily and an increased camping area and footprint, the festival dwarfs its host city, Indio. In the wake of the killing of 58 at a Las Vegas music festival, Indio police and 14 other local and federal agencies will have more eyes than ever on the crowd thanks to the undermanned aerial surveillance."Drones will be flying over watching the perimeters. It takes us a few minutes to get an officer to a perimeter breach but a drone takes 45 seconds," said Indio Police Sgt. Dan Marshall.

A small wildfire is burning about 6 miles away from the music festival , according to the Riverside County Fire Department. Authorities said the fire poses no threat to the Coachella music festival , and that they will continue to monitor the fire and work to contain it.
