New Jersey State Police Train with Special Helper

Last Edited:
ELMER, N.J. -

At times, police departments use empty schools to train in during the summer months, and while members of the New Jersey State Police from the Bridgeton station were training recently, they had a special visitor.

According to the N.J. State Police, the troopers were at the Elmer Elementary School when a young man crashed their training.

The boy was driving by the school with his grandmother and when he saw the police cars parked outside of the school, he asked if they could stop and see what they were doing. 

Little did he know he would soon be in training himself.

The troopers involved the boy and let him help his heroes clear the school and pretend to catch the bad guy.
