Officer Kelvin Moore Jr., - Eastway Division
Officer Kelvin Moore Jr. kept his cool under extreme circumstances and a rapidly developing situation. While responding to a shooting call, he found a man on the ground with a gunshot wound. He quickly contacted MEDIC to provide aid. The man who was shot pointed out to Officer Moore, the subject who fired the shot. Officer Moore took the armed subject into custody but learned that he only fired the shot after being the victim of an attempted armed robbery and was only defending himself. Officer Moore was able to quickly reverse course and take into custody 2 suspects, all still at the scene of the crime. A 3rd suspect who ran was arrested later. Officer Moore displayed great tactical and investigative skills, making sure the correct dangerous suspects were held accountable and removed off the streets.
