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.


The Dienst Luchtvaartpolitie as per 1 December 2010 operates the following aircraft:
