How many years have been teaching at the college/university level? Dr. Moore has been teaching at the university level for the last nine years, beginning in 2003.
Dr. Moore has worked in a variety of law enforcement and criminal justice capacities, having begun his career as a patrolman with a midsize police department before being promoted to investigations where he served as lead narcotics investigator. While serving as lead narcotics investigator he was tasked with coordinating activities related to the investigation and prosecution or drug crime and drug-related crime. In this capacity Dr. Moore was also responsible for the planning and coordination of search warrants related to the seizure of narcotics-related evidence and the arrest of individuals charged with narcotics-related offenses. Dr. Moore has recently accepted a new position with a metropolitan police department in anticipation of working in cyber-related investigations.
How many years of practical experience do you have? Dr. Moore has six years of professional experience in various capacities throughout the law enforcement and criminal justice field.
Dr. Moore believes that all disciplines benefit from a combination of theoretical lecture and practical application discussion. In this manner students are better able to understand the relationship between the concepts and theories associated with leadership, management, finance, public administration, or any other discipline, while also understanding the difficulties facing practitioners in the workforce. To facilitate this dialog Dr. Moore stresses the importance of classroom discussions that take the materials from the textbook and the lectures and then applies those theories or ideas to current events that are being discussed in the national and international news. Every student, regardless of professional or educational background in essence becomes a facilitator of learning in the classroom.
Professional and Community Activities:
For the last two years Dr. Moore has served as an outside evaluator for the Marshall County Drug Court program in Marshall County, Alabama. In this capacity Dr. Moore has worked with program administrators to determine how effective the drug court program is in terms of reducing recidivism (the commission of new crimes) among a sample of drug offenders.

Dr. Moore is currently actively involved in research related to the use and misuse of technology in the commission of criminal and delinquent activities. His most recent publications have examined: 1) the factors that lead young people to continue illegally downloading movies and software while acknowledging that such behaviors are illegal, and 2) variables that can predict a young person's victimization and online harassment. Dr. Moore is currently working on two research projects, one of which is tasked with understanding the relationship between an individual's participation in sexting and a propensity to display lower levels of self-control.
