A contingent of Massachusetts State Police troopers traveled to New Jersey on Saturday to assist authorities in areas ravaged by Hurricane Sandy. Twenty-five troopers will spend the next week helping New Jersey law enforcement patrol parts of the state damaged by the storm, State Police said. They brought cruisers and will stay in barracks in Fort Dix, N.J., according to State Police. Members of the contingent belong to the Division of Field Services, and some are part of the agency’s Special Emergency Response Team.
