Preventing crime, protecting the public and helping those in need

Keeping you safe



The National Police Air Service (NPAS) provides an efficient and accessible air support service throughout England and Wales. This offers better value for money than the previous system of forces owning their own air support team and helicopter.

The air support system is a service organised nationally, but delivered locally. The national, borderless service ensures effective coverage of urban and rural areas.
