Trooper Robert Waldrop is our #BlueFriday honoree for today. He’s a hero and a young woman is alive today because of his quick thinking and action.

Trooper Waldrop exemplifies the bravery, dedication and commitment of our New Jersey State Troopers. Here’s the post from the New Jersey State Police facebook page:
