So I have tired looking through the forums for some sheriff aviation units but mostly came across state police. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any bigger sheriff departments with aviation units that have a larger amount of helicopters.
Sheriff Aviation Units

Los Angeles County is the first that comes to mind:
Presently the LASD Aero Bureau operates a total of 18 helicopters making it the largest fleet of helicopters operated by any Sheriff's Department in the U.S. This would be appropriate since the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department is the largest sheriff's department in the world with over 8,500 sworn deputies and another 5,800 civilian employees.

You might also find the information you seek at the Airborne Law Enforcement Assoc. page: ALEA.org

I second the ALEA website. If you have a membership, you can search their database with every aviation law enforcement agency with an aviation unit.

Wannabepilot12: I answer the phone for my HelicopterAcadem.com and I take a lot of calls for people that want to fly for a police department. I also am currently training a police department in one of my R44’s and those officers are getting trained for free apparently because they trust those individuals. Trust seems to be key here. If you are not in a police department now and you have no money for training I would suggest you joint a department that has helicopters and has a history of hiring lowtime pilots. Where do you live and our “experts” on this forum will show you a lot more personalized service and knowledge in your area than you might be prepared for.
