Moore’s commanding officer at the 105th precinct in Queens says Moore was a true hero.
“He was every commanding officer’s dream. If I had an army of Brian Moores, there’d be no crime in the city,” said Deputy Inspector Mike Coyle of the NYPD. “He could walk into a room, and his smile would turn your day around if you were having a bad day. A real crime fighter, a true believer, a heart of gold.”
Moore is a decorated officer with four medals and over 150 arrests to his name.
His father and uncle are both on the force as well.
