State Detectives Patrolling for Looters

Troopers and local police on alert for curfew breakers, governor's office says

Nearly 30 detectives from the Division of Criminal Justice have been involved in conducting security patrols in Monmouth County over the past 24 hours, officials said.

Additionally, Gov. Chris Christie on Thursday announced that the State Police will be deploying troopers to the barrier islands hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy to work with local and county agencies to ensure safety and security for those communities, according to a release from the governor's office.

"The State Police will provide an enhanced law enforcement presence to protect the property of residents and merchants against potential looting or other crimes, while also providing additional resources and personnel if needed for any rescue and recovery operations," the release says. 

Several Belmar residents and volunteers have reported instances of robbery and looting the last few days, but Belmar police have been unavailable to confirm or deny the reports. 

A more active police presence is detectable downtown as Belmar Police cruisers more frequently can be seen traveling down Main Street.
