Deputy Jailer Moore,
On today, the 45th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Pike County. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement then that of a Corrections/Detention Officer.
