Mineola, NY - May 7, 2015 - James Carver, president of the Nassau County Patrolman’s Benevolent Association, said that over a thousand Nassau County cops will join tens of thousands of police officers from New York City and across the country at funeral services in Seaford, Friday, May 8, 2015, for murdered New York City Police Officer Brian Moore, 25, who was killed in the line of duty in Queens last Saturday.

The funeral for Officer Moore will be one of the largest for a police officer or fire-fighter in decades. “The entire Nassau PBA is in mourning for this brave, young officer who gave his life protecting the citizens of New York City,” Mr. Carver said. “We will all be on hand, along with officers from around the country, to honor our brother, whose life was cut so tragically short. Our hearts go out to Officer Moore’s family. He hails from a long line of police officers. His father and uncle served in the NYPD, and many of his cousins are police officers on Long Island. This is a family that knows service.”

Officer Moore had an extremely promising career on the NYPD. He had served less than five years, but had already made more than 150 arrests and had earned several medals for meritorious service. He died after being shot in the head by a man with an extensive criminal record.

“The Nassau PBA stands ready to assist the Moore family in any way we can,” Mr. Carver said. “It will be an honor for us to stand by them at the service for Officer Moore.”

The funeral will be at 11 AM on Friday at St. James Roman Catholic Church in Seaford.
