legitimate uses for it. >> i think there needs to be a balance between what is being done, what i can request and what the public should know. >> reporter: san jose's police issued a list of guidelines for the drone's intended use, guidelines include that it would not be used for surveillance, it would not carry weapons, it would not be used at night and only be used in dangerous police situations such as someone shooting at police. the council takes up the matter at its 1:30 p.m. meeting today. reporting live at san jose police headquarters, i'm chuck coppola, "today in the bay." a would be robber chose the wrong pharmacy employee to mess with in concord. this happened yesterday afternoon at the oak grove pharmacy on oak grove road. police say the suspect flashed a gun and a demanded drugs, an employee grabbed the gun and fought the suspect off. the suspect grabbed medications, ran to his car, but the partial si employee chased him and got
