West Windsor to Pay $38K for Cops’ Helicopter Lessons

A New Jersey town that doesn’t have a helicopter will pay more than $38,000 for flying lessons that were taken by two police officers.

West Windsor officials agreed to make the payment in exchange for the police union agreeing not to bill the town for such lessons in the future.

An arbitrator in January had ordered the town to pay after reviewing the police contract which reimburses officers for college classes in nearly any subject.

With the latest payment, the township has paid more than $53,000 on flight classes for the two officers, who are working toward degrees in flight aviation technology, since 2011.

Mayor Shing-Fu Hsueh tells the Times of Trenton the township is working to tighten the language of the next contract, which is under negotiation.
