Major Avery L. Moore is originally from Lawton, Oklahoma.  He is a 26 year veteran of the Dallas Police Department and possesses an M.B.A. from the University of Phoenix.  He began his career with the Dallas Police Department as a patrol officer working in the Northeast Patrol Division.  Passionate about teaching and mentoring, Major Moore was selected to become an instructor at the Dallas Police Academy where he taught defensive tactics to recruit police officers.  Major Moore worked as a first line supervisor in the Communications Division, the North Central Patrol Division, and the Dallas Police Academy before his promotion to Lieutenant.  Major Moore was assigned to Crime Scene Unit as the Commander. In addition, Major Moore was the Traffic Section Commander. In that assignment, Major Moore was the Traffic Commander for the Texas State Fair. At this point in his career, Chief David O. Brown personally selected Major Moore to be a Texas Legislative Representative for the department.  Prior to being reassigned to Northeast Patrol, Major Moore was assigned to SWAT as the SWAT Commander. Major Moore was the SWAT Commander the day of the attacks against the Dallas Police and Dallas Area Rapid Transit Police on July, 7, 2016.  He is currently the Acting Division Commander of the Northeast Patrol Division.  Being chosen to lead and influence positive culture in the patrol station where he spent his first 16 years has been a privilege and an honor.
