JA01FP Fukuoka Police Helicopter - Bell 412 EP over Kanmon Straits 福岡県 警察ヘリ とびうめ2号

Japanese police boats can be seen patrolling (I think they are just going for a joyride!) the Kanmon Straits. Sometimes, we can also see Fukuoka Prefectural Police helicopters flying above the straits, as well. This is Fukuoka Police Helicopter JA01FP. It is a Bell 412 EP. This was flying over the Kanmon Strait on the afternoon of April 2, 2022. Probably because it was nice weather and the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. No criminal activity or arrests related to marine traffic along the straits between Shimonoseki City and Kitakyushu City Japan was reported in the news. The Japanese police are affectionately known as Kuso-Poli by local Kitakyushites. They have special place in the hearts of many people in Garden Paradise Kitakyushu.
