Editor's Note:

Despite high fuel prices, law enforcement agencies across the United States continue to task their aviation units with missions as varied as drug interdiction, suspect pursuit and counterterrorism surveillance.

PoliceOne is proud to introduce Aviation Columnist Ken Solosky as the newest addition to our roster of writers.

Ken will be writing about – among other things – how airborne and patrol officers can best work together.
