A new police officer will soon be on the beat in Upper Makefield.
At a public meeting on Sept. 7, the township’s Board of Supervisors voted to hire Ryan Moore as a part-time officer. He’s expected to be sworn in following the completion of a background check.
A 2010 graduate of Central Bucks West High School, Moore studied police administration at Bucks County Community College. He has served as a police officer with the Warrington Police Department and New Hope Borough Police Department.
A member of the Bucks County Major Incident Response Team, Moore’s experience includes everything from criminal investigations to traffic enforcement. He’s received recognition for life-saving efforts related to CPR/first aid and for assisting in the capture of a murder suspect.
