Redding Police Chief Roger Moore announced today that he intends to retire this fall. His last day as the Chief of Police for the City of Redding will be October 4, 2019.
Moore joined the Redding Police Department in 1995 and has served in various roles from patrol officer to his current position of Chief. He began his law enforcement career with the City as a cadet in 1988 and served as a Shasta County Sheriff’s Deputy from 1989 to 1991. He was an officer with the City of Watsonville from 1991 to 1995. He has held positions of Corporal, Sergeant, Lieutenant, and Captain prior to becoming Chief in the Redding Police Department in September 2017.
“I have had the privilege of serving over 30 years in law enforcement and I feel tremendously blessed to have served 24 years of my career here at the Redding Police Department,” Chief Moore said. “It has been my honor to lead our department during the past several years.”
The City of Redding will undergo a national search for its next Police Chief. The role will entail overseeing over 100 officers and a $30 million annual budget.
Moore is 49 and plans to spend time with his family in retirement. “The City of Redding will miss Chief Moore greatly,” said City Manager Barry Tippin. “Roger has been a valuable member of the City team, and is a truly special individual. I wish him well in all his future endeavors.”
