Its future is still up in the air, but that is not stopping Winnipeg Police from asking you for more money to fix its helicopter.
Officers say the infrared camera on the chopper keeps breaking and needs to be replaced.
Patrol Sgt. Rob Duttchen says it’s like if something in your car’s engine was at the end of it’s life.
“There comes a point where it’s less responsible to continue to repair something, than to replace it with something that’s going to then extend life cycle again,” Duttchen explains.
Police are asking the province to help split the bill of the new equipment, pegged at about $360,000.
The request comes as the province continues an official review into whether the helicopter itself should stay in the sky.
