Welcome to the YCSAS

The mission of the Yolo County Sheriff’s Aero Squadron is to cooperate with and assist the legally constituted Sheriff’s Office of Yolo County, in the state of California.  The YCSAS functions under the direction of  Sheriff Ed Prieto.

The YCSAS is composed of approximately 20 volunteer members who are interested in aviation and committed to N9682H assist in the cause of law enforcement in Yolo County. Our missions include drug interdiction/eradication, search and rescue, aerial surveillance, crime scene photography, general photography  for law enforcement purposes, backup for ground units, assist with high speed pursuits, and generally any requests that come from deputies on the ground.

Financial support for YCSAS comes from it’s volunteer members as well as contributions received from members of the community who wish to support our continued efforts.  For more information regarding  financial contributions, please email our treasurer@ycsas.org.
