Bell announced that it has equipped the Sacramento Police Dept. with a Bell 505. The single-engine will be equipped with several law enforcement provisions, including a 15-inch monitor, a mobile map system, a speaker, an MX-10 EO / IR sensor and a Trakka Beam Searchlight projector.
“The Bell 505 will be invaluable in critical calls for service when minutes matter and will allow us to best protect the citizens of Sacramento,” said Sergeant Randy Van Dusen of the Sacramento Police Department’s Air Operations Team. “The ergonomic seats allow the pilot and tactical flight officer to fly for hours comfortably, and the large windows allow for greater visibility that makes searching for suspects and missing persons easier.”
