National Police Air Service (NPAS)

About Us

We provide air support to the 43 police forces of England and Wales from our network of 15 bases. We are the first and only collaboration of all police forces in England and Wales, regulated by law. We support police forces across England and Wales to keep communities safe through providing a 24/7/365 borderless service in which the tasks posing the highest risk to communities are prioritised in line with local police and crime plans. All requests for support are managed through one central point in our national operations centre in West Yorkshire. Through our national fleet, we are normally able to reach 88% of the population of England and Wales within 20 minutes and 97% within 30 minutes.
