He began his law enforcement career with the City of Lenexa in 1981, then served as a police officer, patrol supervisor and member of the Tactical Support Unit for the Olathe Police Department from 1985 to 1992. During his service with Olathe, Mr. Moore received dozens of written commendations for exceptional law enforcement performance.

Mr. Moore received his undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Mid America Nazarene University in 1988 and his Juris Doctor from Washburn University in 1995.

He proudly accepted this challenge and call to public service and served as the District’s first labor counsel, drastically reducing suits and claims against the District and dramatically improving employee relations.
