Connecticut's new public safety commissioner has immediately restored round-the-clock staffing at all state police barracks.

Commissioner Dora Schriro announced the move Monday, saying it's important for all barracks to be accessible to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

WAMC’s Patrick Donges spoke with Connecticut State Police spokesman Lieutenant J. Paul Vance for an update on what Connecticut emergency officials are doing to prepare for Sandy’s imminent landfall and what they are advising for the public over the next 24 to 48 hours.
