CBS:Coast Guard's agile Blackjack unit intercepts potential threats in D.C. sky
The airspace above Washington, D.C., and the surrounding area is the most restricted in the U.S. The U.S. Coast Guard is responsible for intercepting any potential threats that may appear in the sky.

helos???Could out run these with a Cessna...I want F-15s or something. Do they have missiles and a fire control system?

Somehow this doesn't come across as "best effort"...

As the video said no arms onboard.

They are first responders on Alert Status in direct communications with NORAD who can scramble fighters.

Also that rotor wash is probably great for dealing with the pesky drones and are much cheaper to operate than fighters.
