Thought I'd start a thread on Police and Law Enforcement agencies around the world....what's out there and how you do business.
I'm a police pilot (now doing training & checking duties) in Melbourne Australia. We use 2 x AS365N3, 1 x SA365C1 and 1 x AS350BA helicoters. One N3 is dedicated Poice and SAR, the other N3 dedicated to EMS and SAR, the C1 is the back-up to keep the operational police and EMS operations going without downtime 24/7 and the AS350 is used for utility work in the field (such as, crop searching, traffic, transort, whatever).
We have an internal restiction that all metro police patrol flights must be in a twin as we operate down to 300' AGL day and night over the metro area. The EMS must be twin and IFR as well (dictated by the Health department). The Police N3 is also IFR and soon (next couple of months or so) we are starting NVG training for all our crews. The police N3 s also FLIR equipped.
Attached are some pics but not sure if they will work out.
