Ridgewood NJ, NJ State Trooper Evan Curtiss, a Ridgewood High School graduate and a member of Ridgewood Emergency Services, was the pilot of a NJ State Police helicopter that made a “surprise” landing behind Ridgewood Police headquarters late Wednesday morning, 8/15. Trooper Curtiss had been contacted by Ridgewood PBA Local 20 and asked if he could obtain permission fly a police helicopter into Ridgewood in order that Cole McKeon, son of Ridgewood Patrol Officer Kevin McKeon, could see a helicopter up close. Cole is currently under going treatment for Stage 4 cancer, but was able to attend today’s event and was thrilled by what he was able to see and touch.
