NPAS : National Police Air Service

2012 to present    

The UK National Police Air Service was launched on 1 Oct 2012. It covers all Police Forces in England and Wales through a collaboration agreement. Its objective is to deliver overall savings in the air support service whilst moving to an operational model which consolidates bases and assets, through allocation of the nearest airframe(s) to a declared task and maintaining a strategic aircraft reserve. Operationally, West Yorkshire Police is the lead force.
