We have lost Police Officer Brian Moore of the 105th Precinct, who died in the line of duty.
He was a brave officer and at the age of 25 already had an exemplary career. I think that it is time to honor him in a way that demonstrates that his life was a shining example for our youth.
I have a suggestion. I live in Glen Oaks Village on Commonwealth Boulevard and there is an athletic field being built. According to one of the workers, there will be a baseball field, soccer field, football and track.
The athletic field is in the 105th Precinct, and naming the field after Officer Brian Moore would be a great tribute to his memory, and would make sure that what he stood for will not be forgotten. Our youth will be reminded to be the best they can be, as Brian Moore was as he tried to protect and serve the community.
I therefore ask all of our politicians to look into the possibility of this field being called, “The Brian Moore Athletic Field.”
