As a former Detective Commander in the NYPD and Chief of Detectives for the Baltimore Police Department I know exactly how difficult an investigation like this one can be. I want to acknowledge the incredible work of local investigators from the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office and all of the other agencies and personnel who were involved.
The fact that these arrests came from many different facets of this situation says a lot about how comprehensive and in-depth this investigation has been along with the different aspects of accountability and criminality we are dealing with.
While today may be emotionally difficult for those directly involved as the feelings of loss and anger reawaken, ultimately justice and the process of seeking it will provide closure. I look forward to the conclusion of this legal process and obtaining the answers we all seek.
