 Air1 Resumes Operation
   
The Winnipeg Police Service is pleased to acknowledge that Air1 is resuming operational flight status. As previously publicized, Air1 had limited operational response capability due to mechanical issues associated with the infrared camera.
                                                             
Since that time, funding for a new thermal imaging camera has been put in place for Air1.  The commitment for complete funding was approved by the Winnipeg Police Board.
   
Recently, the Alberta RCMP graciously agreed to provide the Service with a camera on loan until such time the replacement camera arrives and can be installed. The procurement process, through Materials Management, is in process and an RFP for the supply and delivery of a new Thermal Imaging Camera will be issued. 
   
Members of the Flight Operations Unit will continue to serve the community by providing support to all operational and investigative Service units in the detection of criminal acts and the apprehension of suspects.
