Stamford's police force is slowest in UK to mobilize air support

The time taken to mobilize police helicopters or drones in Lincolnshire is longer than anywhere else in the UK.

Figures from Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services show the county's force is the slowest to get in the air to help track criminals.

However the cost per head of the population is just 5p, lower than all other forces.

Lincolnshire also recorded the second lowest number of call outs for air support in the UK.
