This site has obtained a copy of the resumé of Sgt. L. Edward (Ed) Moore, whom three well-placed sources now are predicting will soon be named the new Hudson Police Chief. A copy of the resumé can be read as a PDF by clicking here. An excerpt follows below:
I am a thirty two (32) year veteran of the New York State Police. I have the unique qualification of having been involved in all facets of police management, criminal investigations, and road patrol. As the highest ranking and longest serving non-commissioned officer in the four county region of the Mid-Hudson River Valley of New York State, I have had numerous commendations for public service, personal integrity, administration, and investigative work in organized crime, drug trafficking, bribery, and corruption.
The New York State police have honored me with the rank of First Sergeant of Troop K. Only nine other State Police Members hold this prestigious position – “the Sergeant’s Sergeant.” As such, I am in charge of the Headquarters facility in Millbrook, responsible for the supervision of 20 civilian staff, developing special details and plans for Troop K’s activities. I oversee the maintenance of the Troop’s 300 plus vehicles, and the purchases of all supplies and equipment. I have oversight of scheduling, deployment of manpower, safety, overtime expenditures, and discipline. I am in charge of ceremonial details, and I am particularly proud of assuring the Troop’s adherence to military regulations, proper display of the flag, and the traditions of the New York State Police.
Moore’s resumé cites, among other things: his voluntary service in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina; his management of infrastructure and building projects for the Troop K barracks in Livingston, an investigation into illegal dumping which led to the arrest of a mob hit man (including his cross-examination by F. Lee Bailey), and his apprehension of a suspect in a murder which occurred in the Columbia Memorial Hospital parking lot,
