Protecting the Big Bend From the Air

LCSO helicopters now have the ability to send real time video from the air to units on the ground.

This gives commanders more information to make critical decisions.

As the only aviation unit of its kind in the area, these choppers cover more than just Tallahassee.

INVE Lee Majors, a LCSO pilot, says, "We respond to all the surrounding counties. The sheriff is responsible for a 13 county region for the domestic security task force and any of the counties or anywhere the sheriff tells us to go we will go to."

The 13 county region runs from Liberty County all the way east to Columbia and south to Dixie.
