Aibus Helicopters Inc H175 proposal for NYPD

At this time the only parapulbic operator of the Airbus Helicopters H175 is the Hong Kong Government Flying Service (for you old timers it was the Royal Hong Kong Auxillary Air Force lol) anyhow Airbus Helicopters Inc is proposing pair of H175 to NYPD Aviation Unit for SAR etc to replace some older Bell 412.

Interesting, I would have thought the NYPD powers that be would wish to buy American, or do these H175 have some form of unique feature set?

Its not mil, so does not matter, half of if not not 2/3 of US airborne law enforcement is dominated by Airbus Helicopters H125 (AS350B2/3 Astar) .
Airbus Helicopters Inc (formerly American Eurocopter ) based at Arlington, Tx and Volumbus MS, is big. They also have assembly factory for the H125 for a few years.

Homeland Security - Customs Border Patrol Air & Marine Branch have large fleet of Astars (my photos from Air & Space Expo 2019 Joint Base Andrews).

Since late 60s whether it’s been the old Sud-Oust then Aerospatiale and BO105 then Eurocopter and now Airbus Helicopters have had a heavy presence in USA With all segments of the marketplace. And in the last 4 decades they served airborne law enforcement marketplace in USA, go back Another decade earlier and the Alouette III started the HEMS. A

And recently Houston PD which has been traditional Md Helicopters customer ( as well as briefly having Bell 412 for SWAT ) suddenly got delivered an Astar
