With the recent introduction of the modern Bell 505 Jet Ranger X, “We’ve seen incredible interest for the Bell 505 from law enforcement agencies around the world,” said Anthony Moreland, managing director, North America.
Earlier this year, Bell announced the sale of the first law enforcement configured Bell 505 to Sacramento Police department.
“The enhanced visibility, maneuverability and advanced avionics of the Bell 505 make it the choice aircraft for our operations” said, Greg Brown, Sergeant, Sacramento Police Department’s Air Operations Unit. “The Bell 505 will be invaluable in reducing man hours spent as well as response times in critical routine calls of service.”
