OAKLAND, Calif. — The Police Department's eye in the sky will get off the ground more often this year thanks to a private donation.

Oakland police lauded Fueling California on Wednesday after the nonprofit donated $10,000 worth of fuel to power Oakland's police helicopters.

"This will certainly go a long way to helping ... the police department keep our streets safe," police Chief Howard Jordan said during a news conference at the department's helicopter station near the Oakland International Airport.
