Hurricane Sandy, Looting-Prone NJ Towns. New Jersey state troopers will be deployed to barrier islands hard-hit by Superstorm Sandy to provide extra security.

Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa and state police Superintendent Col. Rick Fuentes say the troopers will work with local law enforcement in devastated shore communities.

Officials discussed their plans at a news conference Thursday at the Ocean County Office of Emergency Management in Berkeley Township.

Chiesa told The Associated Press on Thursday that law enforcement wants a ``high visibility'' presence both on land and in marine units to discourage people from trying to loot and access the islands by boat.

In Manasquan, a town covered with sand, the police were a visible presence Thursday afternoon as they patrolled the beachfront area slammed by the storm.
