Statement from Police Commissioner O’Neill on the conviction in the murder of Detective Brian Moore

“The murder of Detective Brian Moore reminds us of the extraordinary danger police officers face every day, protecting this City. Brian chose this profession to protect others, to do good, and to serve a cause greater than himself. He was murdered doing his job and in defense of every New Yorker. I thank the investigators and prosecutors who worked this case successfully with personal commitment and resolve. To the public who assisted us along the way: thank you for your help in ensuring that this career criminal is removed from the community and not given the opportunity to cause further harm.”

James P. O’Neill
Police Commissioner, New York City Police Department
