SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Starting Tuesday, law enforcement in Utah will have new restrictions on the use of unmanned aerial vehicles.

With the exception of some emergencies, police will generally not be able to use the aircraft_commonly known as drones_without first obtaining a warrant.

At least nine states passed restrictions on drones last year and Utah is one of four states that have taken similar action thus far in 2014.

Utah legislators have said they anticipate additional restrictions, including limits on the general public, will be needed down the road as use of the technology spreads.

The aircraft often resemble remote controlled planes and helicopters and can range in size from micro, insect-sized devices to small jetliners.
