All the aircraft listed as "hasn't been used since" are still flying.

Flightaware is only going to show IFR flight plans, or some VFR flight plans with flight following (but rarely). CHP almost never files IFR flight plans, or picks up flight following.

FlightAware will also show the ADS-B data source flight on the aircraft page/history.
Most CHP helicopters using ADS-B now.
(FlightAware members need higher membership to see them. if it's only ADS-B flight without any flight plans.)

Position-Only Flights
[] Show position-only flights
[] Do not show position-only flights
When this option is activated, you can see additional flights for which FlightAware does not have a filed flight plan.
Tracking data for position-only flights is incomplete and potentially inaccurate.
It's listed under the user account page.

Good point, though pretty certain it's included in their standard stats/maps. Most GA aircraft (CHP included) do not have ADS-B installed, so that really isn't going to make much of a difference in this case.

[Edit] Correct, several of their helicopters do.

Reviewing the last few flights for the CHP's Gippsaero GA8 TC-320 aircraft.

N153HP Aircraft sending ADS-B data
N137HP Aircraft sending ADS-B data
N156HP Aircraft sending ADS-B data
N139HP Aircraft sending ADS-B data

N140HP Showing up on FlightAware due to MLAT. (It stopped sending ADS-B data around/after 21-Oct-2017)
N148HP Showing up on FlightAware due to MLAT. (It stopped sending ADS-B data around/after 19-Oct-2017)
^ Note: Some were sending ADS-B data in 2017.
