- The Air Police is a new Force. When crime took to the air, as was bound to happen, only men with air experience could hope to cope with it; for the new criminals, amateurs perhaps, were also airmen,
- The possibilities covered a wide field, Smuggling, currency running, illegal entry into the country, drug carrying and the like. The old fashioned methods of law-breaking, understood by the regular police were no longer employed. It was a matter of new times, new ways.
- The man entrusted to deal with this problem, by forming an efficient flying squad in the literal sense of the word was war-time ace pilot ex-squadron Leader James Bigglesworth, D.S.O., D.F.C., known to his friend as Biggles.
