Update: Phoenix PD brought in a second bird with a mechanic onboard who flew the malfunctioning helicopter back to KDVT.

A spokesperson said that there was a malfunctioning indicator light showing an engine problem so the crew made a precautionary landing. Besides being a bit shook up they were not injured in the incident.

Two photos attached.
