First Of Three For Department
Bell Helicopter told ANN this week of the recent delivery of a
model 206B3 Jet Ranger to the Dallas (TX) Police Department. The
new state-of-the-art helicopter (type shown below) is equipped with
the latest in flight displays and moving map displays for enhanced
safety of flight around the city and reduced response times.
Lieutenant Anthony Williams, commander of the Dallas Police
helicopter unit, accepted the new helicopter for the department and
was quoted as saying, "This Bell 206 will not only allow us to
continue to protect and to serve the citizens of Dallas from the
air, it affirms a great partnership over the last several decades
with Bell Helicopter."
David Cruz, Homeland Security Sales Manager for Bell Helicopter
stated, "We are proud to continue our long term relationship with
the Dallas Police Department and provide the department with the
aircraft they have determined will meet their mission requirements
now and in the future."
The Bell 206B3 is the first of three new Bell Helicopters for
the department with two more aircraft to follow into service. Bell
Helicopter was selected after a competitive bid process by the
Dallas Police Department.

unmanned vertical lift aircraft.
