New London — The city's police chief, who had been out on medical disability after being injured during Superstorm Sandy, is back on the job full time.

Chief Margaret Ackley was hit in the head with a window that blew out at the emergency operations center on Bank Street during the October storm. At the time, the chief put an ice pack on her head and continued to work for several days, according Mayor Daryl Justin Finizo. But she suffered a head injury, which precipitated other injuries, according to Jane Glover, the city's chief administrative officer.

Ackley worked reduced hours for several months until the mayor put her on medical disability in February.

She returned to duty Tuesday.

"She's back at work. She put in a full day yesterday and has been meeting with her staff and getting brought back up to speed with what's been going on," Glover said Wednesday.
