State of the art Victoria police choppers – Leonardo AW139 helicopters
Victoria Police now have new Choppers. They are 4 and where purchased at a price of over $60 million. They replace the old choppers that where less advanced as these one’s are. One of the capabilities that they have is, from very far distance in the air. The pilot can zoom in on a car / track registration number. The police team on the ground can provide the pilot with a residential address. Once the pilot punches it in the system the camera swings to the address.how cool is that. and its day or night.
These choppers will also land on top of the new police headquarters on Spencer street and major hospitals. They also can fly from Melbourne to parts of Victoria without the need to refuel. They are able to fly 1000 kilometre’s without refuelling. Its very hard for suspects being chased by the police Chopper to get away. these choppers can travel up-to 250 km per hour and can be at very far distance but you are still in there radar.
The addition of these new state of the art Choppers, makes it much easy for the police officers on the ground to perform tasks so quick in enforcing law and order, arrive on time on car crush sites, transport detective’s to remote Victoria locations, track suspect’s, assist in search and rescue missions and many more at a quick time when police officer’s are needed. It’s a worth an investment by the Victorian government.
Victoria Police wings Addition is a squadron
Another addition to the Victoria Police wing will be a squadron. They will have many drowns that are so advanced. They will be unmanned in the air, giving the police officers on the ground mobile eyes. The drone squadron which was scheduled to start in August this year, would be managed within the state police air wing. These drowns camera’s work 24/7 being able to support police officers even at nights. What are the other advanced features of these drowns is still unknown? What is important to the police and the community is when a crime is reported. The speed and flexibility that the police officers need to respond quickly. The use of advanced technology by police, is to respond on time when a crime is reported. Keeping the community safe is getting much better with the police using state of the art tech to fight crime and assist search and rescue to save lives.
