Wow. I checked, and I have this exact issue of the magazine, which I bought for a quarter at a yard sale 20 years ago.

As one of the comments noted, except for using a fixed wing aircraft, the writer (probably Hugo Gernsback) anticipated the police helicopter. In fact, he also inadvertently predicted the military helicopter gunship.
