Sgt. Bob Moore leaving after serving 30-plus years on city’s force

(Continued)

NORMAN —

“The only reason why I know this guy is because I didn’t want to speak in front of 19 people, and now over lunch at a sexual assault and domestic abuse conference I’m speaking in front of 350,” he said.

Moore’s daughter, Carol Donnelly, also spoke at the ceremony Monday, talking about how proud she was of her father and the impact he has made on her life personally.

“You showed me what it was like to be a good person,” Donnelly said. “You definitely taught me to be a good person in life that you just have to be good to others.”

Donnelly said she was proud to be Moore’s daughter and while she’s happy he’s retiring, she knows at the end of the day, what he did was not only helpful to the community but also to families.

Humphrey said during 19 years of Moore’s service he talked 20 to 30 people out of committing suicide.

“That is amazing,” Humphrey said. “He is just patient and passionate. He loves children and he loves people.”

Moore began working for the city of Norman as a dispatcher before he became a police officer in 1984. He has served on several committees over the years, including a Safe School committee, crisis intervention team and peer support. He was a tactics instructor and also a field training officer.

In his 30 years of service, Moore received 82 letters of appreciation or commendation including being named Police Officer of the Year in 2011 and receiving a National School Safety Recognition Award.
