Veteran police officer retires
Sgt. Robert Moore has retired from the Norman Police Department after 30 years of service. Moore is best known for developing the popular program “My Body, My Life,” which guides women to be champions of their own safety. He co-wrote the program in 1994 initially for teenage girls in the Norman Public School system. Since then, more than a thousand teenagers have taken the program. The program was expanded to include women in the community. The course teaches girls and women prevention strategies, self-confidence and self-defense. Moore said he will continue to work with the program despite retiring from the department.
