June 17, 2019-- Before he became a Class III School Resource Officer (SRO) at East Dover Elementary School, Officer Ron Kirby was a captain within the New Jersey State Police Department. This past Friday, June 14, he helped arrange a demonstration for students at his school, which included a surprise landing of the New Jersey State Police Aviation Unit's Bell helicopter on the school field. Students toured the helicopter and the entire East Dover school body was able to meet and take pictures with state troopers. The event was part of the school's PBSIS (positive behavior support in schools) end-of-year celebration, and featured even more fun than just helicopters, including, according to witnesses, Sgt. Gene Bachonski of TRPD performing the Cha Cha Slide with students.
