The National Transportation Safety Board makes the following 
recommendations to the Airborne Law Enforcement Association:

Revise your standards to define pilot rest and ensure that 
pilots receive protected rest periods that are sufficient to 
minimize the likelihood of pilot fatigue during aviation 
operations. (A-11-56) 

Revise your accreditation standards to require that all pilots 
receive training in methods for safely exiting inadvertently 
encountered instrument meteorological conditions for all 
aircraft categories in which they operate. (A-11-57) 

Encourage your members to install 406-megahertz emergency 
locator transmitters on all of their aircraft. (A-11-58) 

Encourage your members to install flight-tracking equipment 
on all public aircraft that would allow for near-continuous 
flight tracking during missions. (A-11-59)
