Established 1972, the Kern County Sheriff's Department Air Support Unit began with a new Bell 47 which was used until crashed in 1975 fortunately without victims. It was replaced by a Hughes 500C but in 1978 the unit was deactivated due lack of funding. Six years later, in 1984, was reactivated with a leased Bell 206 which was replaced by 2 new MD500E in 1987. In 1997, 2 ex army OH-58A+ Kiowas joined the unit and in 2008 they get their first medium helicopter, a Huey II
