They use both, the advantage of the fixed wing one, I believe, is that it can stay in the air longer than a helicopter.

And it's cheaper to operate the plane, much better on fuel. Not armed though.

That'll be the one I saw repeatedly over S9 during the lockdown. Couldn't tell from where I am if it was a real plane or someone flying a fancy drone.

It'll be the police plane. It's transponder is hidden on FlightRadar during 'operational flights' but does show occasionally.
