Books by Kevin Moore

Kevin Moore joined Sussex Police at the age of twenty-one years in June 1978. His father was a serving officer with the Force at that time having joined in the 1950s. Sadly, his father died a few months after he himself had joined. This means that their joint careers span a total of over 60 years of policing. After joining the police, the author spent his two-year probationary period at Brighton during which time he operated as a beat officer and area car driver/observer. Whilst there, he experienced a wide variety of policing situations as one would expect in terms of the cosmopolitan nature of a City the size Brighton and Hove. Following this, he became a rural beat patrol officer at Camber near Rye in East Sussex. A short while later, he entered the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), as a detective constable. This proved to be the beginning of a long and productive career as a detective during which time he climbed the ranks ultimately achieving the highest rank possible in the CID world of Detective Chief Superintendent when he was the Head of Sussex's CID. During his service he was the senior detective in charge of the CID at Hastings and Eastbourne. He also worked within the Professional Standards Department investigation complaints made against police officers. He also served as the Chief Superintendent and Divisional Commander of Brighton and Hove during which time he was responsible for all police operations in the City as well as working with key partner agencies including the City's Council. He took command of many large-scale public order demonstrations as well as other major public safety events. During his detective career, he was a Senior Investigating Officer (SIO) with a responsibility for leading enquiries into homicide and other major crime investigations. He was viewed as being a highly competent senior detective. He was formerly a member if the International Homicide Investigators Association. Following his retirement as a police officer in 2009 after more than thirty-one years of service, he took up a position with the newly formed S.E. Regional Organised Crime Unit as a civilian or member of police staff. This involved the role as the Regional Intelligence Manager and then subsequently that of the S.E. Regional Prison Intelligence Manager. This Unit has an overall responsibility for investigating the criminal activities of those involved in the commission of the most serious types of crime. He fully retired from the police service in January of 2018. He has been married to Ann for over forty years and has two grown up children and five grandchildren. He holds a BA (Hons) Degree in Public Sector and Police Studies and a Post Graduate Diploma in Police Studies. He is interested in football and cricket and is a season ticket holder with Brighton and Hove Albion F.C. and also now spends his time with his and his wife's Golden Retriever dogs and their four horses.
