Cost Saving


According to the BBC News website, the Surrey, Hampshire & Sussex Police are to share resources.

A unit which sees Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire Police share two helicopters instead of each flying their own has been officially launched.

The South East Air Support Unit (SEASU) received a single certificate from the Civil Aviation Authority on Friday.

The forces believe they can save up to £8m in five years flying two aircraft, based at RAF Odiham in Hampshire and Shoreham airport in West Sussex.

Looking at the locations, it seems that the only loser will be Surrey Police. Shoreham is too far away for effective for deployment in Surrey. Hampshire is such a large county the one based in Odiham will be over Hampshire constantly.
