Airborne law enforcement conference in Tucson

Posted: Updated:

Law enforcement leaders from across the globe head to Tucson to get a sneak peak of the latest airborne technology.

It's all part of the Airborne Law Enforcement Association's 40th Annual Conference and Exposition.  Wednesday, the exhibition floor opened up for the first time at the Tucson Convention Center. It helps airborne law enforcement members learn more about aircraft safety practices and operations.

"Our primary goal is to educational training we put on a lot of training classes, but the vendors at the exhibit floor are vendors as small as people that make the leather name tags for flight suits up to as large as the air frame manufactures the helicopter and airplane manufactures," says Martin Jackson, President of the Airborne Law Enforcement Association.

Officers will participate in conference classes for the rest of the week.
