Deepest condolences to the families & fellow officers of the VA State Police who died today.
"We are deeply saddened by the loss of Jay and Berke, both of whom were our close friends and trusted members of our team", McAuliffe said in a statement. "Their deaths are a tremendous loss to our agency and the Commonwealth". The Trooper-Pilots are trained in-house on VSP aircraft, which include four Bell 407 helicopters, two American Eurocopter EC145 helicopters, and three Cessna fixed-wing aircraft. Cullen is survived by his wife and two sons. The unit also employs three full-time mechanics for its fleet and exceeds minimum FAA maintenance requirements. He had just transferred to the Aviation Unit as a Trooper-Pilot in July. Our hearts go out to their wives and children, and we stand by to support them during this difficult time.
