BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Troopers with Louisiana State Police were some of the law enforcement agents from across the country that responded to help those in need in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.

Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy devastating the northeastern US.

A total of 31 LSP troopers spent 11 days helping out with security in the barrier areas of New Jersey by protecting property as people returned to their homes.

After returning back to Louisiana, Sgt. Jonas Martin said many of the victims bonded with the troopers after learning where they were from.

Col. Mike Edmonson, superintendent of LSP, praised his troopers for the job they performed and added Gov. Chris Christy had offered his thanks for the assistance.

Edmonson and his troopers are remembering their time helping the people of New Jersey with a look back at their efforts.
