Eyes in the Skies

How does Christianity connect with policemen in a helicopter? Fr. Mike interviews Sgt. Daniel Futscher from the San Bernardino Sheriff Department. Sgt. Futscher has had experience working in jails, operating as the dispatcher, and being the rescuer on the helicopter. He encounters people in various panic situations and has to stabilize the situation with understanding and compassion. They discuss the balance of discipline and respect as law enforcement officers meet people in their most vulnerable moments. Sgt. Futscher calls the helicopter “the eye in the sky”. Fr. Mike had taken a ride with them and was amazed how one could see the license plate of cars below. It certainly is a big aid to the police force in pursuing wrong doers, as well as rescuing those lost in the desert or mountains.
