Sarasota’s new police chief, Bernadette DiPino, who starts her new job Jan. 1, has been busy at work in Ocean City, Md., trying to help make sure the beach town is braced for Hurricane Sandy.

NPR reporters mentioned in a broadcast Monday that DiPino was giving updates to Ocean City about the storm.

In an interview with the Baltimore Sun, DiPino said that despite floodwaters reaching about 3 to 4 feet and evacuation orders, about 200 people, or 80% of downtown residents, remained in their homes to wait out the storm.

DiPino was named Sarasota’s new chief Oct. 16.
