DEPTFORD TOWNSHIP, New Jersey (WPVI) -- The body of fallen Deptford Township Police Department Officer Robert "Bobby" Shisler was escorted back to New Jersey on Tuesday.
Multiple police departments collaborated to transport the officer from the medical examiner's office in Philadelphia to the Boucher Funeral Home in Deptford Township, New Jersey.
A full motorcade followed behind the hearse carrying Shisler's body through the streets of Philadelphia. An aerial view from Sky 6 showed officers standing at attention before the procession was led over the Ben Franklin Bridge and into South Jersey.
A funeral will be held on May 17 at noon at Pfleeger Concert Hall on the campus of Rowan University in Glassboro.
Shisler's death is the first line of duty death for the department.
