KENT COUNTY, Mich – Several people contacted FOX17 Wednesday evening after spotting a police helicopter hovering over parts of the greater Grand Rapids area.

We contacted Michigan State Police, who tell us the helicopter is in the area for training.  There is a good chance the helicopter will be seen a few more times in the coming weeks for similar exercises.

On Wednesday afternoon, the police helicopter was in the right place at the right time, assisting Grand Rapids Police with a chase following a traffic stop along Grandville Avenue.
