PHOENIX — From his corner office in a downtown Phoenix high rise, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio can see quite a bit, but he wants tools to allow him to view even more.

Arpaio confirms to ABC15 he has a plan to use drones, if he can get them.

"I want two of these drones, unmanned and of course unarmed," said Arpaio.

Using a drone would require approval from the Federal Aviation Administration, which can be a lengthy process.
