There are 3 thing the Helicopter cannot deal with.



2 Drive into a Airport zone where they will not get permission to fly. Even if they do get conformation to fly around the airport they will have to be in a holding persistion and loss allot of time.
Not true.
On a recent police camera interceptors etc prog. they just radioed ahead when they could see they were heading into the approach zone of heathrow, and gave ATC the heads up. When it was decided that they definately had to go in, ATC just diverted the airliners until the police chopper was done.

Actually a good option would be .. a campus university

Lots of people, usually lots of places to dump a car, loads of buildings all connected together, and nobody knows everyone. For bonus points hit the fire alarm in various buildings before making an escape amongst the crowds.

maybe a hospital with a small motorbike, designed for wheelchair access lots of exits and miles of coridores to blast down leaving the police behind, few cameras and lots of places to hide or transfer swag.

Right got it I think:

Evo 8 (highly tuned)
Lots of mates driving similar cars
Various stingers etc. for following police cars
Drive like a loony to MSCP
Set off smoke bombs
Set off fire alarms
Into second get away car (Audi A8 with NOS) ready and waiting
Dump PAYG phone, get another
Drive sedately to Terminal 5
Catch Tube to Terminal 1
Dump PAYG phone (just in case)
Hold glass above head (make sure it is double glazed) j/k
Mill about Terminal 1 and catch flight to Barbados.

So are we all meeting at the pre-arranged point at 9pm then?

I wonder the % that get away, either from traffic chases or helicopters? They're never going to show them on the tele, of course, but if you're driving a fast car and are prepared to take risks that the police driver isn't, surely your chances are not bad until you get a team on you?
I guess if you can put enough off a gap between you and the initial pursuit car then you are in with a chance. They can radio for units ahead as much as they like but if you can get out of sight and off the motorway before being picked up by other air or ground units then they wont know where you are going. It's not usually worth the risk though.

On a related note, this clip was on VODcars this week, he obviously thinks it's worth running hehe

I have a roll of tin foil in the boot to evade the thermo cameras, and a hostage. I keep various changes of clothes in the boot with the hostage and the foil, along with a wide brimed hat to conceal my face from above. I also drive a silver car as there are shed loads of them on the road. I am also DNA/forensically aware and wear a tight fitting hairnet and latex gloves, and a face mask at all times. I also have a baby which I use for a decoy by dropping it out of the drivers window in a baby chair thing, so they stop to see if it is OK. My final trick is a set of roof stickers with a police call sign on which makes me look like a BiB involved in the chase. I stop, get out and look confused as if I don;t kow which way the perp has fone. Works very time.

I also tend to be pretty law abiding such that they have no need to chase me, which I found works best of all.

excellent idea.

Students are always guilty of something even if it just a thought crime.

Even if the real perp gets away you can at least claim to be cleansing society of its hairyarsed clagnuts

How do police dogs know what petty criminals smell like?

That's not how they work, they pick up the scent of a trail the person leaves when they disturb what they are walking/running on.

Must be tricky for one to pick a lock though

Anyway, what's that odd helicopter picture above?
i used to have toys of them

Surely they could pick up the trail of anyone who recently said block of flats.

The easy answer would be a "tick suit" and a wood. They'd never find you unless they had sniffer dogs.

Automatic rifle. Lean out of window. Open fire, they won't stick around (would you?). Of course armed response would get called out immediately, so you'd have to make your move very quickly.

That's actually the best suggestion so far, IMO. Even more bonus points for doing a bit of recon before the job and disabling (or re-aiming) any cameras to hide you quickly changing your appearance.

Really? Anything else you shouldn't say in case the police dogs pick it up in the near future? What about "bow wow" will that throw them off?

I think this thread qualifies to be published as 'tricks and tips - your onestop guide to police helicopter evasion'

Getting back on track if i were to do the perfect heist, i would hope that by the time the police or heli had been called into action i would be long gone, and here is how.........

Choose a bank in a town (not a city - this will minimise CCTV and i would suggest a town at least 100 miles from home)
Park a stolen white van with fake plates round the corner of the bank
Wait for securicor man
Relieve securicor of dosh before he enters bank
Run like hell to van. (At this point police are called)
Drive van calmly to nearby residential area. (Police at scene & looking for van)
Swap over to legit car, possibly your own family hatchback (Police still looking for van)
Drive calmly back through town (passing crime scene)
Get onto motorway (accomplases (sp!) bag up and clean weapons & balaclavas))
Stop off at mway service station (get bk and discretely dump baged up bits in bk bin)
Get home have a kip.
Never ever commit a crime again (incase dna and the like has turned up somewhere)
Spend cash on strippers / chav sluts
