    Idaho Police Officer Dies in the line of duty

    To be fair we hear about who gets shot all the time. But I think we have reached a moment to guide our own destiny. Respect goes both ways. It is not a one way street. I feel we respect our officers? I would hope to receive respect back?

    Beyond that though? Greg Moore lost his life. But when someone shot him? All lives attached to Greg were broken. Just like when the young black men were shot? But Greg wasnt just a human he was a father. I hope my daughters looks back on me and she can respect who I am? If I were to leave this world suddenly? I know my life story is in words just for her. Well Gregs children may not be so lucky?

    Most importantly? He was human. Not black or white or yellow. He simply was an officer doing his job. Then he suddenly was blinked out of this world. Now the children have an unwritten chapter to his life. Just like Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Ezell Ford, Freddie Gray and 6 people in my family who committed suicide so far. Yes the last 6? Were suicides with unfinished lives. I have lost a lot but I am not a child of someone who was shot to death. The children coming into this world? They have lost a lot. I know that feeling. The only thing that matters for compassion is knowing this? "I AM HUMAN" Simple as that....... Color means nothing but that meat and soul you carry around? That is what matters nothing else.

    Last night my neighbors house was on fire? 7 people inside 2 propane tanks blown. They did not hear or see it and asleep. Why did I go in and get them up and get them out? They are human. I would do it for anyone.

    But this is for Greg Moore. RIP and know what you shared with your children? That is the good stuff and what matters.

    Greg Moore dies from a gunshot wound he suffered in a shooting in Coeur d'Alene Idaho. This is my area and wanted to share.

    The Coeur d’Alene Police Department is profoundly sorrowful to confirm the death of our fellow officer Sergeant Greg Moore who passed away from his injuries from a gun-shot wound at 5:50 pm today.

    Words cannot adequately express the level of mourning we feel for Sergeant Moore’s family and our law enforcement family.
    We appreciate all of the kindness our community has shown to our officers, and the thoughtful prayers said for Sergeant Moore. We wish to express our sincerest gratitude to the dedicated, professional, emergency first responders, and medical team and staff at Kootenai Health that cared for Greg in an effort to save him.

    Please respect the privacy of his family at this time while they tend to funeral arrangements.

    Sergeant Greg Moore was a highly respected member of the Coeur d’Alene Police Department who faithfully served his community for the past sixteen years. Among his numerous accomplishments he was honored and awarded the Police Star for bravery and professionalism earlier this year.

    Sergeant Moore began his law enforcement career as a Deputy Sheriff for Asotin County Washington in December of 1997 and stayed with that agency until March of 1999. In April of 1999 he began his distinguished career with the Coeur d’Alene Police Department. He quickly ascended to leadership positions as a Police Reserve Officer Coordinator, a Field Training Officer, a School Resource Officer, and in 2012 he was promoted to the rank of Sergeant. Sergeant Moore had many special skills and training certifications including as a Post Certified Instructor in Arrest Techniques, Instructor for Communications, and he was a member of the Hostage Negotiation Team.

    In 2007 he was named Kootenai County Top Cop by the Kootenai County Substance Abuse Council for his efforts in DUI enforcement. Sergeant Greg Moore was a mentor and trusted friend to his fellow officers at Coeur d’Alene Police Department. He lived his life with honor, dedication and loyalty as a public servant to the citizens of Coeur d’Alene. Even more importantly he was a dedicated husband and father of two wonderful children.
