Houston Police Department Air Support Division Celebrates 40 Years

MD Helicopters, Inc joins with the Wichita,KS Police Department Air Section in cel- ebrating its 40th anniversary. The WPD Air Section is one of the original 13 charter mem- bers of "Operation Sky Knight," the first formal police helicopter patrol program in the United States. The program was initially launched as a pilot program by the Los Angeles, CA Sheriff's Department. The Air Section owns and operates an MD 500E and is budgeted to fly up to 1,000 hours annually. The unit's full- time staff is comprised of Lt. Paul J. Shields (Supervisor/Pilot); Officer Peter D. Dolieslager (Pilot); Officer Bradley E. Carver (Tactical Flight Officer); and David L. Frye (Director of Maintenance). Since its incep- tion, the unit has logged over 50,000 flight hours. The Air Section’s motto is

“A Proud Tradition of Providing Airborne Public Service since 1970. ” They became operational in January of that year flying Hughes/

Schweizer Model 300B/C pis- ton powered helicopters for 33 years until upgrading to the current MD 500E. As a three-time “All American City” winner, Wichita offers its residents and visitors a quality of life that is clean, safe, and growing. It serves as the financial, transportation, and distribution center of the cen- tral Kansas region. From the earliest days of the aircraft industry, Wichita has been a leading producer of general avi- ation, commercial, and military aircraft and is universally recog- nized as “The Air Capital of the World.” The Wichita Police Department's personnel strength includes a compliment of over 800 commissioned offi- cers and non-commissioned, civilian employees. The Air Section is dedicated to support- ing officers assigned to the field at the operational level and plays a vital role in the Department's “Safe and Secure Community” Public Safety Initiative. ◆
