Buckinghamshire Police Chopper Could Cover Cambridgeshire

Buckinghamshire Police Chopper Could Cover Cambridgeshire

Published by the Mix96 News Team at 6:01am 1st July 2011.

The two main police helicopters which provide air cover for Buckinghamshire and the Thames Valley - may be stretched even further in future.

The Chiltern Air Support service - which also already covers Beds and Herts as well - could also have to fly over Cambridgshire's police area.

Cost-cutting means Cambridgeshire are scrapping their helicopter, and are in early talks with our local chopper service to see if aircraft could fill the gap.

In a statement to mix96, Thames Valley Police said "We can confirm the Chiltern Air Support Unit has been in discussions with Cambridgeshire Police about the possibility of Cambridge joining the consortium.

These negotiations are still at a very early stage and it has not been decide whether this will happen

As such, it is far too soon to be speculating on timetables and coverage provided by the unit."
