Former Yavapai County Sheriff H. “Curly” Moore, 86, passed away this morning, March 2, 2015, in Henderson, Nevada. 


Dates of Service as Sheriff: January 1, 1977 – December 31, 1988

Moore was born in Kansas and grew up in the Phoenix area of Arizona following a move from Colorado, and even from his early days he always had an interest in law enforcement. He eventually joined the Highway Patrol (Arizona Department of Public Safety) in 1951 and held various assignments in the areas of Patrol, Liaison to the Arizona State Senate, and Executive Aide to then Governor Paul Fannin. Moore would go on to serve 22 and ½ years attaining the rank of Sergeant. Moore took a break from his work at the Highway Patrol when he left the agency in a move to Alaska where he became a police officer with the Fairbanks Police Department. After about three years, Moore returned to Arizona and the Highway Patrol to finish his tenure retiring in 1975. 

He moved to Yavapai County where several friends of his convinced him to run for Sheriff of Yavapai County. He was elected in the November 1976 general election and sworn in as Sheriff on January 1, 1977. 

During his administration he was able to improve community relations, establish a cadet (Police Explorer) program for teens, develop, and establish the first agency policy manual in August of 1977, and hire additional deputies bringing the total number of deputies from 77 in 1977 to 90 in 1988. Additionally, he orchestrated the modernization of communication equipment, the replacement of much older patrol cars with new Sheriff’s Office vehicles that included such “luxuries” as power steering and refrigeration (air conditioning). There was resistance on the issue of power steering and refrigeration from the board of supervisors who, at that time, saw no justification for the additional expenditure. Moore persisted and persuaded the Board that these items were necessary. 

Moore was instrumental in the design and groundbreaking of the current Criminal Justice Building and Detention Center on Gurley Street in Prescott, Arizona. Opened in late 1980, the building housed the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office Headquarters, County Jail, Board of Supervisors, County Treasurer, and the Adult Probation Department. Prior to 1980 the Sheriff’s Office, Jail, Supervisors, Courts, and County Departments were based in the County Court House. Moore also brought forth a comprehensive pension plan for deputy sheriffs and detention officers for the first time placing them in the still existing state level Public Safety Retirement System. The prior county retirement system had little to no benefits. As Sheriff, Moore saw the County Population increase from about 60,000 to over 100,000 during his administration.

Sheriff Moore was voted Sheriff of the Year by the Arizona County Attorney’s and Sheriff’s Association.

Several historically significant cases that were investigated during his Administration include the 1977 Yarnell bank robbery and hostage incident, the 1977 Poland brothers armored truck robbery and homicides, the Cathy Sposito homicide in 1987, and the Pamela Pitts Homicide in 1988. 

In November 1988, Sheriff Moore lost in the general election to former Prescott Police Department Lieutenant G.C. “Buck” Buchanan. Following his retirement as Sheriff on December 31, 1988, Moore was appointed by Governor Rose Mofford (R-AZ) to the Arizona Liquor Board as a Judge-Hearing officer and served in that capacity until 1990 when Moore retired from public service after almost 40 years. 

Moore was preceded in death by his wife Mary Jane, a daughter, and his parents. He is survived by a sister, his children, and several generations of grandchildren.

Sheriff Mascher and all those at YCSO who knew Sheriff Moore would like to express their condolences to family and friends on his passing.

Overview of HP Officejet 4500 Wireless

This is a good-looking device, as long as you’re very fond of high-gloss, black plastic. The top of the heavily curved case and the input tray for the ADF are shiny, though the front of the case is ribbed, which gives it a bit of character.Projecting from the front of the machine, at the left-hand end, is a small, well-designed control panel, centred on a single-line, 16-character LCD. This display also shows a number of symbols to indicate the mode the device is switched to and status conditions, like "low ink" or "cover open". Controls include simple menu navigation and a number pad for fax dialling. read more...
