One word: "Turf"Too bad there can't be a collaberation between multiple metro area law enforcement agencies. If grounding Air 1 will save Denver $473,800 why not split the cost between the 7 Metro Counites? Each county would be responsible $67,000 and change. That's about the cost of two fully equipped command staff SUV's that respond to less incidents than the helicopter would.
All 7 counties could share and request the chopper, requests would be prioritized based on severity. Each county cutting two, take home chief cars would be well worth it in my opinion.
Yes I've heard them recently while not that often (due to costs I'm sure) they seem to be up on Friday and Saturday nights especially.Has anyone heard if Air-1 been running? Usually during the summer months there busy with there bright spotlight. I have'nt heard them in awhile or they could be grounded.
I'll have to listen more, yeah i can see Friday and Saterday being the busy days. Usually with these HOT temps days crimes activity goes up. 102 on Saterday, and today maybe a 100.Yes I've heard them recently while not that often (due to costs I'm sure) they seem to be up on Friday and Saturday nights especially.
