NYPD take delivery of Bell 412


The New York Police Depatment has taken delivery of a Bell 412 for use on counter terrorism missions

Bell Helicopter has
announced the delivery of a Bell
412 helicopter to the New York Police Department. The NYPD currently has three Bell 412s in service for
a variety of missions ranging from search and rescue at sea to gathering
intelligence and more recently, combating terrorism.

“The mission has
changed rapidly. Now aviation is being used more as a force multiplier for patrol,
gathering intelligence, counter-terrorism and the detective bureau,”
remarked Captain James Coan of the NYPD commanding office. “We have a 64
year relationship with Bell Helicopter and we are very happy with them,”
added Coan.

“The NYPD is one of the
most recognized police aviation units in the world. They are a symbol of America and we are very proud they choose Bell helicopters for
their heroic missions,” said Danny Maldonado, executive vice president of
Sales and Marketing at Bell Helicopter. “We give our most sincere thanks
to the NYPD for selecting Bell Helicopter to be a part of their future,”
Maldonado added.
