    Ever deploy the dog from an MD500? Attack, or to search the inside of a building from the top down?

    Brings a new meaning to the phrase "fur missile".

    We’ve trained our dogs to ride in the helicopter. I’ve seen videos of dogs deployed from helicopters but we’ve never done that.

    It was either to get a team up top to search down or deploy snipers.

    I recall have seen mention several times that, at one point, the Alaska State Troopers considered making their SRT airborne capable. Probably the only state in the union that could make a good argument for it.

    If the Netflix documentary "Murder Mountain" is at all accurate, I could maybe see some use for airborne SWAT in the Emerald Triangle. But I don't think those small departments could afford it...
