On Tuesday, the Indiana Senate approved a resolution to memorialize the service and sacrifice of Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Officer David Moore. Presented by State Senator Greg Taylor of Indianapolis, Senate Resolution 42 honors the life of Officer Moore after his tragic, unexpected death in the line of duty on January 26, 2011.
Officer Moore joined the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) and was honored as Rookie of the Year in 2004. His commitment to the job and strong work ethic continued to earn him success and respect through this career.
Having dedicated his life to protecting the citizens of Indianapolis, Officer Moore’s legacy is one of dignity and integrity. An organ donor, his service did not end on January 26, but continues to better the lives of others through the gift of survival and health.
At just 29 years old, Officer Moore is succeeded by both his mother, Sergeant Jo Ann Moore, and his father, retired Lieutenant Spencer Lee Moore, as a dedicated member of the IMPD. He was a man respected not only for his passion for serving Indianapolis residents but for the passion of his mother and father.
Thousands of family, friends, officers and citizens from across the state attended Officer Moore’s memorial service at Conseco Fieldhouse on February 1, a testament to the honorable example he set in life and the far-reaching legacy and inspiring impression he leaves behind.
Sen. Taylor asked for the Senate to recognize Officer Moore and his family for their dedication to improving the lives of Indiana residents.
SEN. TAYLOR: “I humbly stand before you today…”
Senator Jean Breaux of Indianapolis recognized Officer Moore’s mother and father for showing Indianapolis how to mourn such an unimaginable loss with great dignity and courage.
SEN. BREAUX: “First of all, thank you Sen. Taylor…”
In closing, Sen. Taylor noted Officer Moore’s contributions to the betterment of society in life and in death.
SEN. TAYLOR: “We recognize his courage…”
