Police, Search and Rescue


Philadelphia’s Police Department is now able to incorporate hoist rescues into its portfolio of law enforcement, patrol and SAR operations with the addition of a new AS350 B2 from Airbus Helicopters Inc., the U.S. arm of Airbus Helicopters (formerly Eurocopter). In addition to law enforcement, the helicopter will see service in various roles to include SWAT team insertions, general patrols, harbor and coastal surveillance, SAR and homeland security. The handover is the first as part of a two-helicopter order.
