united kingdom UK Police Forces


Although there is no National Police Force in the UK, it is convenient in Helis.com to present local Police Forces as units, so we can show ownership of individual air frames, although in practice there is no formal control over them from a national level
From 2010, an initiative to develop a National Police Air Service ( NPAS ) is underway. It seeks to encourage central reporting, regional co-ordination amongst forces yet deliver savings and benefits locally. NPAS came into existence on 1 Oct 2012.
