Early in May an associate contacted the West Yorkshire Combined Authority for a comment on the position relating to the leadership of the National Police Air Service. The reply on progress was simply a stall statement.

With a month to go it is not going to happen within the stated year. The two forces likely to do anything about it have their own problems with a chief constable retiring, a major event to plan and there being no commissioner in London. If nothing else they will be months off a 'yes' and why would they ever say yes?

Meanwhile, the failed organisation, NPAS remains wholly in charge of all that is manned and those that do not have air support, and it is not everyone of course, are finding that most of their day-to-day air support needs can be met by drones in their own control.

I would suppose that the biggest danger by far to the future is that someone proposes that NPAS gets into some sort of national drone operation and complete destroys that too.

And of course they have said that they want to get into drones. Fortunately perhaps they have been saying just that since at least 2017 and have not yet managed anything that was not provided by others.

Its all down to weak management of course, not in West Yorkshire they are as bolshy as ever, it is elsewhere. The Home Office is massively distracted by Migrants and key staff are probably more interested in getting the children to the zoo whilst working from home and when it comes to oversight of each other the NPCC are simply not keen at shouting "wos going on?" or stabbing each other in the back just in case it effects their mental health profile. I got further bad news for them, it seems that Ibuprofen is now deemed bad for you.
