The description on the print states:
N156HP is a GA8-TC-320 Airvan operated by the Central Division Air Operations Unit and based at Fresno Yosemite International Airport (KFAT) in Fresno, California. The unit operates two airplanes and one helicopter and covers thousands of square miles in the San Joaquin Valley including two spectacular national parks, Yosemite and Sequoia & Kings Canyon. The CHP is the primary law enforcement agency for freeways and highways, state-owned facilities and properties, and unincorporated communities.
The aerial platform’s crew includes a CHP Officer/Pilot and a CHP Officer/Flight Officer and is available 24/7 to assist with pursuit and traffic management, surveillance, aerial photography and mapping. It is also available for personnel and blood and organ transport, fire detection, and to assist other law enforcement agencies as needed. On-board equipment includes a retractable, high-definition L3 Wescam MX-15 IR imaging system deployed in flight and operated by the Flight Officer from the rear compartment, a Rhotheta multi-band radio direction finder to detect stolen vehicles equipped with anti-theft transponders, and multiple scanners and radios to monitor and communicate with the personnel and agencies it is actively supporting.
