Springtime means Ripon Police Dept puts their Powered Parachute patrol back up in the air

Springtime means Ripon Police Dept puts their Powered Parachute (PPC) back into patrol.Ripon Police Dept powered parachute

This is a unique Police tool that Ripon was one of the first to have one back in May 2009.  Everytime my dog sees them overhead, he barks.  I must say that I am always looking up when they are out patroling just because it's so neat to see.  It's like watching a police motorcycle in the air.

Things I love about our local Ripon Police having this.  They can patrol areas that are hard to reach by car.  They can really see the bad guys in action.  I love that it only cost $30 an hour to operate (how cool is that one!!) I'm sure the criminals don't like it but that's why we live here.  It's a safe place to raise your children & enjoy life.

"The aircraft does not need a traditional runway, and there is no need for a traditional aircraft hangar. The aircraft can easily be towed to a desired location, and it can be deployed and flown by one Officer/Pilot. A second Officer can be added onboard to act as a Tactical Flight Officer. The PPC is commonly regarded as one of the safest forms of flight."....fun facts from Ripon Police Website
