Sirens & Gavels

Site details sheriff’s helicopter activity

Hear a helicopter circling and wonder what it’s up to? You’re not alone.

To quench that curiosity, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office now will log the helicopter unit’s activities on its website. Click on the “Air Support Unit” link, then on “Incident Reports.”

“Area residents frequently contact media for information after hearing Air One circling their neighborhood at night or seeing it above during daytime searches,” the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Tuesday.

Crews will try to update the log at the end of each flight, although some sensitive material, such as assistance to active police investigations, won’t be included, the sheriff’s office said.
