    For many Moore families, Christmas time is fun and exciting, with plenty of presents under the tree Christmas morning. But there are those in Moore where there is no guarantee of gifts for the kids. That’s where the Moore Fire Department and the Santa Express program come in. Firefighters go shopping and buy toys for kids who are on a predetermined list, bag them up and send them off to their destination on a Moore fire truck.

    New toys can be dropped off at any Moore Fire Station between Nov. 24th - Dec. 17th. Read More » about Moore Firefighters Santa Express

  • Private Security Camera Registration Program

    The Moore Police Department would like your help.  We are starting a new program to help us in solving crimes and recover stolen property. Many homes and businesses are installing private security cameras.  We are asking for your help in compiling a list of camera locations by having the owners register their system with the Moore Police Department.  This program is completely voluntary and will not cost the owner any money.  The information will then be utilized when a crime is reported in an area where we have a list of locations with cameras.  The Police Department would then contact the owner and request a copy of their video footage to help develop leads in the investigation.  There would be no cost to the individual or business as the Police Department would provide the necessary equipment to download the video footage.  The information provided by the owner of the camera system will not be available to the public or subject to open records requests.
