Helicopters provide extremely effective and irreplaceable support for law enforcement operations.
Eagle One Air Support Unit removes the barriers of costly air support operations typically found in other parts of the United States by making helicopter resources available on a shared basis to participating local law enforcement agencies in Thurston, Lewis and Mason County Washington.
EOA will provide a fully equipped mission-ready helicopter and a crew of highly trained qualified volunteer pilots at no cost. There is no expensive capital outlay or pilot compensation required from participating departments.
The only cost to the participating law enforcement agencies are the shared operational expenses which are very low, making helicopter aerial support available to our local police at a fraction of the normal cost.
