Anthony Stansfeld praises NPAS
Anthony Stansfeld visited staff and the helicopter at the local National Air Support Service (NPAS) base yesterday (13/02).
The PCC got a chance to learn more about the organisation and the work they do as well as speak to staff.
NPAS replaced a lot of localised police helicopter operations in England and Wales last year and instead works as a national organisation.
Anthony Stansfeld said: It is an impressive organisation which fulfils a critical role in a number of areas. The centralisation of air assets is essential and cost effective. Coming from an aviation background I fully support the measures that have been undertaken."
