Ca. Alhambra, Arcadia, Azusa, South Pasadena, Monrovia, West Covina, Glendora, (Foothill Air Support Unit)

The Foothill Air Support Team is an extension of the Pasadena Police Air Support Unit formed in 1999, with six partner cities.  The six cities, Alhambra Arcadia, Azusa, South Pasadena, Monrovia, West Covina and Glendora are all located in the Foothills area of northern Los Angeles County.  As the name implies, these are the foothills of the towering San Gabriel Mountains.

Each of the six cities provides one Tactical Flight Officer to the "FAST" team, who are then partnered with a Pasadena Police Pilot. 

The Pasadena Police operate 2- Enstrom F28 helicopers, 1- Enstrom 480, 1- Bell 206, and 2- Bell OH-58 helicopters.
