In Memoriam, to our fallen Jersey City Police Officer Melvin Vincent Santiago, EOW: 07/13/2014
"Our hearts are
heavy with the
his life in the
line of duty
“Yesterday, Patrolman Santiago was murdered in cold blood while protecting the people of Jersey City.
All indications are that his killer had set out to commit such a heinous act simply for the notoriety it would bring to him.
As law enforcement officers, we proudly represent and serve the blue line, metaphorically and literally. The fine men and women who serve and protect our community are the line of defense between good and evil. Patrolman Santiago bravely served Jersey City with honor, dignity, and courage, and his legacy will be marked as a true hero, such as he deserves.
We are disappointed by some media outlet’s decision to posthumously bring the murderer the attention he sought, as well as the uprising of a shrine. What kind of society do we live in where memorializing a violent murderer is acceptable? Our hope in the coming days is that all attention will be directed towards the bravery of our lost brother, Patrolman Melvin Santiago.”
