The city of Baltimore will be monitored by surveillance airplanes for up to six months next year under a pilot program announced Friday. The pilot program is aimed at helping law enforcement investigate violent crime, and will effectively restart a tactic secretively used three years ago .

The flights, which civil liberties groups oppose, will start in May 2020 and gather footage during the hours when the city experiences high rates of crime. The announcement marks a reversal for Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison, who previously expressed skepticism over the use of the planes and described the idea as an "untested" crime-fighting strategy .

"We will be the first American city to use this technology in an attempt to solve and deter violent crime," Harrison said at a news conference. He said he believes it could prove to be "yet another tool" to fight the violence plaguing the city . .
