Just picking up the pieces

John Barcus has been a police officer with the Mantoloking Police Department for twenty years. Before his career as a police officer, John served in the First Gulf War with the Marine Corps. During Superstorm Sandy, John played a vital role in keeping order and saving lives in Mantoloking. A year later, he reflects on the harrowing experiences he lived through during the storm, and the lasting effects that still hamper the Mantoloking Police Department’s ability to protect and serve.
