Hampshire police to send officers to British Virgin Islands following Hurricane Irma

Have your say

THE police’s air coverage of West Sussex is due to change.

Sussex Police Authority has agreed, in principle, to support the introduction of the National Police Air Support, which would see the county from being served by two aircraft of the South East Air Support Unit to being served by aircraft based in Surrey, Hampshire, Kent and Oxford. The authority said it could only agree if there would be no significant reduction in response times.
