BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - More than 100 law enforcement pilots and aircrew members are in Buffalo Tuesday to sharpen their skills. The Erie County Sheriff's Air One Helicopter came in for a landing at the Adam's Mark Hotel.
The event kicked off a two-day seminar for the North East Airborne Law Enforcement Association. Training includes working with the same technology that helped catch the Boston bombings suspect.

Air One Pilot Captain Kevin Caffery said, " We have the same exact camera built on the bottom. That's our infrared camera. They're very expensive. It's $203,000 just for that camera but if you save on life or catch on bad guy it's worth every dime of it."
The conference also includes training on aviation smuggling trends and in-flight emergencies.
