On November 17, 2012, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Air 1 helicopter assisted SPD during a vehicle pursuit. This video is a great example of Air 1’s FLIR camera which shows heat signatures enabling them to see at night and locate suspect. This is information is a potion from the SPD news release:

Helen Garlinghouse was arrested after attempting to flee from patrol officers. Her erratic driving caught officers’ attention near Mallon and Napa. Helen was driving a Toyota Tercel and after a pursuit, she lost control and crashed near Thor and Hartson.
