The Edmonton Police may still be able to get a new helicopter. Originally, the helicopter request was going to be removed from the city’s 2019-22 capital budget. But Coun. Sarah Hamilton suggested that the $6.2 million request be held open in the budget books, and the money be financed through debt, the city borrowing the money and the police paying it back. The Edmonton Police received their new Airbus H-125 in February and hope to get another one while retiring their older Chopper, Air 2, reports CBC.
