Joshua Moyers

Deputy Sheriff Joshua Moyers succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained two days earlier while conducting a traffic stop near the intersection of US-301 and Sandy Ford Road.

During the traffic stop Deputy Moyers was given a false name by the driver and learned the tags belonged to a different vehicle. As he opened the driver's door to place the man in custody the subject shot Deputy Moyers in the face and back. The man fled the scene over a railroad crossing just as the arms were coming down and a train passed, blocking other deputies from immediately pursuing him.

The subject was apprehended five days later.

Deputy Sheriff Moyers was transported to UF Health Jacksonville where he remained on life support until September 26th, 2021, so that his organs could be donated.

Deputy Sheriff Moyers had served with the Nassau County Sheriff's Office for over six years. He is survived by his fiancée, parents, and brother.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.
