Sergeant Floyd Moore was shot and killed with his own weapon after surprising a burglar at an apartment complex. He obtained the suspect's identification and placed it in his breast pocket. He then instructed the suspect to follow him. As Sergeant Moore turned around the suspect grabbed his revolver and opened fire. The suspect was later identified by the identification card Sergeant Moore had taken from him.

The suspect was convicted and sentenced to death, however, the sentence was later commuted to life imprisonment.

Sergeant Moore had served with the agency for seven years.

I'll never forget the night you backed me up as a citizen, unarmed. You asked if I thought you could get on with my agency. The following years and the cases we worked together are moments I keep with me always. I try not to recall the moment I heard Jessie call for help after you couldn't respond to dispatch's call. I like to believe you were already with God by then.

You were a great officer and friend and father. As we approach the thirty first anniversary of your end of watch, you remain in my our hearts and minds always. May you truly rest in peace until that day when we meet again in Heaven.
