Thanks

They started flight operations in January 2006. They started with a Bell L-4 and have since added a Bell 206BIII.

...And being a Chicagoan, I don't think I have ever seen them in the air.

How did you find out? I've asked many people in the department and no one knew. Are you a member of that unit?

I am a member of the Airborne Law Enforcement Association. I have been trying to get an air support unit going in my area and have been following their work. Their unit supervisor is Commander Holm. I think if you contact the unit directily they could answer any questions you might have.

Anyone have an idea of what the size is of the current CPD / Cook County Helicopter Joint Task Force is now? I know they had two Bells and a handful of aviation officers around the end of 2008.

 

For sworn officers, is there a published ground patrol experience requirement? Minimum aviation ratings for initial application?

I can call and ask if you want. Not that you can't but sometimes a fellow LE pilot can get a little farther with the skinny
