The Dienst Luchtvaartpolitie (Police Aviation Service) is the aviation branch of the Dutch Korps landelijke politiediensten (KLPD; National Police Services Agency). They operate a fleet of fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters for various law enforcement purposes and surveillance duties. They are also responsible for enforcing air law, for example by conducting alcohol checks on pilots.
