BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Thirty one Louisiana State Troopers returned from an 11-day
stint in New Jersey early Tuesday morning. The group was stationed on the
Atlantic Ocean in an area known as "The Barriers." Our troopers were sworn in
upon their arrival and acted as New Jersey commissioned officers.
Sgt. Jonas Martin was on the detail that helped out. He says
the victim's bonded with them when they found out where the troopers had come
from. "They all remembered what happened back in 2005," says Martin. "They
immediately started relating to us and just started talking. They would ask us
about being through this situation."
Martin says they were there to protect property as people
returned to their homes. He says he was a little anxious at first because he
had never been that far north.
State Police Colonel Mike Edmonson said the troopers did a
great job and that New Jersey Governor Chris Christy thanked him recently at
the Republican Convention in Las Vegas this week.
