Offering encouragement and more and better viewing areas to plane spotters and photo enthusiasts would be a plus. Such people have more to offer than might be first apparent. They are potentially in the best situation to discover and report anything abnormal. There are occasional reports where security personal have come down very heavily on such people even when they are outside of the airport boundaries. Happily the security blokes on 'our patch' are usually tolerant of the long lens brigade.

What to do if a drone is spotted? Well, that's the real challenge. Find the operator and you have solved two problems. Here again, the more observers, the better the chances of seeing something suspicious.
