NORMAN — A Norman police officer was awarded for his “contribution and dedication to school safety” in local schools and the community.
Sgt. Bob Moore received a National School Safety Recognition Award from the School Safety Advocacy Council.
The award is based, in part, on Moore’s development of the “My Body … My Life …” program, which began as a self-defense and rape prevention initiative for girls in the early 1990s.
The program has grown to include all of the middle schools and high schools in Norman.
Additionally, Moore and other Norman police officers provide the training to a wide segment of the community, including civic, scholastic and business organizations to help women understand and address violence in an appropriate manner.
