A Baltimore Police Department's helicopter made an emergency landing in Reedbird Park Friday night after facing technical difficulties, police said.

No one was injured in the landing, which was made as a precautionary measure, according to police spokesman Det. Vernon Davis. No details were immediately available about what caused the incident.

The helicopter was able to fly back to its helipad shortly after making the landing, Davis said.

The Baltimore police aviation unit, which is known as Foxtrot, got four new helicopters with better surveillance tools last year.
