Don't they use these to look for bad guys??
They do. Also for Search and Rescue.
We have an air Coast Guard base in Opa-Locka airport (KOPF). The flight path goes right over my local beach jetty so every so often I see them, plus Dauphine Helicopters and also cargo DC-3s and similar older planes on their way to the Bahamas or just out to sea.

Doesn't John Travolta have his home "base" near there??
