Gottlieb said the power disruptions could cause new medicine shortages and exacerbate shortages that existed before Hurricane Maria, and Irma before that, slammed the island. "Who knows if they're going to be able to shower or whatnot, but a lot of our officers have family in Puerto Rico".

The first rotation of officers left from Logan Airport Saturday to help with hurricane relief in Puerto Rico.

Medicines made in Puerto Rico include AstraZeneca's cholesterol drug Crestor, antibiotics and drugs for inflammation from Pfizer and Roche's Accu-Chek blood sugar test strips for diabetics.

"Many of these officers have family, friends and loved ones on the island, making this mission not only an important professional response, but a deeply personal one as they bring their skills, empathy and compassion to those still left suffering in the wake of a devastating hurricane season", the Boston Police Department said.

Governor Christie said. "Their experience should prove invaluable to Puerto Rico and we wish them well on their mission".

But the Federal Emergency Management Agency and other federal personnel are there trying to help.

"It doesn't matter where you are from", Curbelo said. "With this event, we, like everyone in Tallahassee, can be one step closer to helping people in need". "We became police officers to help people". Recovery may be a long and hard process, but with a united mentality, Curbelo affirms that we can "restore Puerto Rico to the handsome island it is".
