Prosecutor Santiago would also like to thank the response by the Monmouth University Police and Administration who, at all times, had the interests of the students and local community in mind. Lastly, thank you to the Monmouth University students who cooperated with the shelter in place order and allowed police to do their job to ensure their safety.
