Frequently Asked Questions


What if I can't hear what the Sheriff helicopter is saying? 

Call or text "Hello" to (858) 866-HELO (4356) to receive helicopter messages straight to your phone. Sheriff's ASTREA (helicopter) uses a loudspeaker when searching for a missing person or suspect. Announcements are also made during critical incidents such as a SWAT standoff, disasters, crowd management events or to give people a shelter in place notification. This is not an automated or a push notification service. You still need to call or text "Hello" to (858) 866-HELO each time you hear Sheriff's ASTREA making announcements over your area.
If there is more than one active broadcast at any given time, you have the option to choose the message that impacts your location. Currently, this service is only available for Sheriff's Department patrol areas. Learn more about the communities the San Diego County Sheriff's Department serves.
