Western Australia Police Buys Australia’s First H145

2020 08 images7 western Australia police buys 1st h145The Western Australia Police Force became the first Australian customer to buy Airbus Helicopters’ new five-bladed H145 in late July. Purchased to replace its BK117 helicopter and to operate alongside the AS365 N3+, this state-of-the-art H145 offers a full range of capabilities for the Western Australia Police Force, including single-pilot and instrument flight rules, along with night vision goggles capability.

On top of its multi-mission fit out, this specialized platform will have a fully integrated on-board police mission system, providing exceptional airborne law enforcement capability. This is complemented with Airbusʼ Helionix avionics suite and 4-axis autopilot system, significantly reducing crew workload and underpinning flight safety. For exclusive use by the Western Australia Police Force, the new aircraft will be based in Perth, servicing the entire State of Western Australia.

Chula Vista PD Approved For Broader Use Of Drones

2020 08 images8 chula vista PD approved for broader use of dronesThe Chula Vista (CA) Police Department received certification on June 28 to fly its drones beyond line-of-sight and became the first police department in the nation to receive such approval from the Federal Aviation Administration. The UAS program had already been approved to operate larger drones BVLOS.

CVPD recently purchased new Skydio drones for the task, an American-made drone that uses a series of cameras to detect objects and avoid collisions and allows pilots to fly around buildings or into hard-to-access canyons during the day. The new drones are smaller and can be kept in the trunk of an officer’s patrol car until needed. The department has found them useful on the east side of the city, which is outside the range of its current drone fleet. The Skydio drones do not replace the department’s existing drones, which are based on buildings on the city’s west side and dispatched from police headquarters. Those DJI drones are larger and are equipped with speakers. All of the drones are only used to respond to calls or in an emergency.

CVPD has been ahead of the drone curve, taking part in a test program, dubbed Integration Pilot Program and run by the FAA. The idea is to figure out how to safely integrate drones into national airspace. The Chula Vista Police Department is the only law enforcement agency in the nationwide program. IPP Manager in San Diego, Katelyn McCauley, said in a news release that the waiver is "truly first-of-its-kind, operationally game-changing, and potentially extensible to public safety agencies nationwide."

Laser Strike Arrest Leads to Multiple Charges for Calgary Man

2020 08 images11 laser strike arrest leadds to multipleThe Calgary Police Service arrested a man after he allegedly shined a laser pointer into the eyes of a police helicopter pilot on July 17. The 44-year-old was arrested on multiple criminal offenses, as well as charges under the Canadian Aviation Regulations and Aeronautics Act.

According to a release from the Calgary Police Service, the Helicopter Air Watch for Community Safety (HAWCS) helicopter had been responding to a service call when a laser was pointed into the cockpit. The HAWCS aircrew determined the laser came from an apartment and directed ground troops to the location. When they arrived, the occupants refused to open the door. Officers returned with a search warrant that yielded drugs, cash, weapons, ammunition and a Class 3B laser.

The 44-year-old man was arrested and charged with 14 offenses, including possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, obstruction of a peace officer, possession of a restricted/prohibited firearm with ammunition, careless storage of a firearm, and breach of probation, as well as the Canadian Aviation Regulations and Aeronautics Act charges of projection of a directed bright light source at an aircraft and creating a hazard to safety.

2020 08 images12 sheriff one helps save hiler with quick actionThe Pima County (AZ) Sheriff's Department, alongside Search and Rescue deputies, responded to a hiker rescue at the King Canyon Trail on July 18. The 20-year-old female hiker was having trouble breathing. Because of the location of the hiker, the department’s helicopter Sheriff One was used to help in the rescue.

SAR Deputy Jeremy Ramirez spotted the hiker on the trail and was lowered from the helicopter where he triaged the hiker, monitored she was in anaphylactic shock, and utilized an EpiPen. The hiker was then airlifted out of the trail, taken to an awaiting fire department ambulance, where she was then taken to a hospital. Doctors advised that deputy Ramirezʼ quick medical response saved the hikers life.

Connecticut City Council Approves Police UAS Purchase

2020 08 images15 connecticut city council approves police UASThe Hamden (CT) Police Department was authorized in late July to spend grant money on an unmanned aircraft. The UAS was part of an array of equipment authorized to help the department during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Hamden Legislative Council voted to accept $82,363 in coronavirus-related funding from the U.S. Department of Justice; the UAS and accessories are expected to cost $33,500.

Police Chief John Sullivan and former Chief John Cappiello said the drone would be used mostly for search and rescue operations. The DJI Matrice 300 RTK will be outfitted with a wide-angle and thermal camera. The department decided it might want the aircraft in the future, and the grant was an opportunity to obtain it without having to pay out of pocket.

Texas Department Grows UAS Unit

2020 08 images16 texas dept grows uas unitThe Kaufman County (TX) Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) has ordered a new unmanned aircraft system, which will grow its drone fleet to six. Department officials said they launched the unmanned aircraft unit last fall in an effort to catch more criminals and save lives. The KCSO Drone Unit is funded by grant and forfeiture funds. KCSO’s existing fleet of five drones have proven useful in criminal investigations and suspect pursuits, officials said. No timeline for receipt of the sixth UAS was provided.

Each of KCSO’s UAS is outfitted with high-definition cameras, mapping capabilities, spotlights, thermal imagers, night vision, blue tooth connectivity and public address speakers. KCSO also has five deputies who are trained and licensed to operate the drones. The drones are kept with deputies in their patrol vehicles and are ready to be deployed as soon as they are deemed appropriate or dispatched to another agency.

California Man Gets 27 Months for Shining Laser at Helicopter

2020 08 images17 CA man gets 27 months for shining laser at heliA 34-year-old man was sentenced last month to two years and three months in prison for pointing a powerful green laser beam at the Stanislaus County (CA) Sheriff Departments helicopter in 2017. According to court records, the man struck the department’s helicopter five to six times with a powerful green laser, causing visual interference for the pilot and tactical flight officer. The man’s actions, which occurred within the FAA-designated laser-free zone of the Modesto Airport, disrupted an air support response to a domestic violence call.

An examination of the perpetrator’s laser revealed it was 17 times more powerful than the legal limit for a handheld laser. The man pleaded guilty to the crime in March 2018.

Alabama County to Use Public Safety Drones

2020 08 images18 AL county to use public safety dronesThe Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office is planning to use drones to enhance public and officer safety after 18 months of training and the purchase of DJI drones. Baldwin County has always relied on officers on the ground and in helicopters to monitor crime scenes and public safety at events. After examining what the latest drones are capable of achieving, Baldwin County decided it was the right time to invest in this technology.

The department is using the recently acquired drones for the crime scene photography and documentation, surveillance planning and operations, SWAT call-outs, monitoring large-scale events, traffic management and missing persons missions.
