Why is there a helicopter above 42nd and 4th Ave this Sunday a.m.? Here's the number to find out.

Police are looking for a man with a gun at 10:25 a.m. I found out because I called: 213-485-2600.

That's a number at the Los Angeles Police Department where they will tell you why theres a chopper circling your neighborhood. Thanks LAist!

The LAPD has the largest municipal airborne law enforcement operation in the world with 17 helicopters and one twin engine plane.

And as I finish this post the whirring noise is gone.

Oct. 17, 2009 - bear in the air and cops on the street - possible burglary suspect.
They actually told you? I called my PD about a helicopter and all she told me was "They're probably looking for someone." Okay...I'll just stay inside until they're done then. :)
213-485-2600 - this number isn't just the police, it's the command center for the helicopter so they know exactly what's going on.

Now if we could only get them to buy a quieter copter.
What a loud noise they make at night in neighborhoods all over the city. I wonder do they circle homes in the W. Los Angeles area of the city as much as ours. That would be a interesting question to submit to our Councilman Bernard Parks?
9:58 - Aug. 20 - The operator said that she heard and Officer Help call got out. Perhaps there was a robbery and they are in a foot pursuit of the suspect. So close your sliding glass door and lock the doors. He could be running through the yards.
Thanks for posting this. Sometimes it’s the smallest bit of information that goes the furthest. I will now put this phone number 213-485-2600 on speed dial, that way I’ll always be abreast of why they are up there and not just angry because they are up there :)
