Remembering a Hero: Fallen Deptford Police Officer Robert Shisler laid to rest

Family, friends, fellow officers and the community he served paid their respects to Officer Robert Shisler, whose life came to an abrupt and heartbreaking end.

Shisler, an officer with the Deptford Township Police Department, was left fighting for his life after he was shot in the line of duty this past March, and paying the ultimate sacrifice.

After he succumbed to his injuries several weeks later, Deptford Township Police, along with Philadelphia Police and law enforcement from across New Jersey gathered to show their support.

On Wednesday, that same sea of red and blue came together yet again to escort the fallen officer to his funeral at Rowan University.

"It speaks to the brotherhood," said Detective Rib Taylor with the Logan Township Police Department. "It speaks to the shared experience that the police officers have from across the country. I was standing behind police officers from South Carolina and Texas. They came from across the nation to honor Officer Shisler and I think rightfully so."
