The news release said specific tactics on police response would not be discussed or released.
Preston is hoping photos uploaded to the Morgantown Police Department's Facebook page will lead to the identification of several persons of interest in connection to Saturday's rioting.
One photo allegedly shows a man throwing objects at police and another apparently shows a man jumping through a street fire.
Of the 15 people arrested last Saturday, 10 were charged with offenses ranging from battery on an officer, escape, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest/obstructing an officer and battery. Five people were charged with arson-related offenses. In the past year, WVU said 40 students were expelled or suspended for bad behavior.
WVU President James P. Clements devoted a portion of his State of the University address on Monday to the rowdy crowd. The address, normally given to tout the university's accomplishments and goals, was overshadowed by the crowd's behavior, he said.
Clements said he would strengthen expulsion and discipline policies for students caught in criminal behavior. This would be accomplished through alcohol education and prevention, increased security and more surveillance cameras.
