HPD Air Support Team In Action

Our HPD Air Support Team played an integral role in the apprehension of a burglary suspect this week. After the suspect fled on foot from patrol officers into an open field, the Air Support team was able to follow and closely track him. Our pilot, Officer Jeff Serpas, positioned and expertly landed the chopper nearby. This allowed Sergeant Steven Borgstedte to jump from the cabin, capture, and hold the suspect until back-up arrived. It was an extremely successful joint effort. 

Check out this interview with Fox News for great footage and more details.
