25 troopers are patrolling and providing security in devastated areas
Louisiana State Police are on the ground in New Jersey, helping authorities there in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
State police commander, Col. Mike Edmonson, flew to New Jersey Thursday. He tells 99.5FM that 25 of his troopers are there patrolling and providing security.
"We want to help the people return to normalcy because that's what it's all about."
Edmonson says he toured the devastated areas along the Jersey shore, and saw first hand how widespread the destruction is.
Edmonson says he'll be there for a couple of days while his troopers will be there for 16 to 24 days.
