    The annual Moore War 5K Run will be held Saturday, August 27, 2016.  Registration will be held at the Moore High School parking lot beginning at 6:30 a.m.  

    The run will begin at 7:30 a.m. at the intersection of Main and Eastern (Moore High School parking lot). 

    Parts of Eastern Ave., 19th St. and Broadway Ave. will be closed for the safety of the participants during this event.

    The Moore War Run committee would like to invite our citizens to come out and watch the race and show our community spirit to the runners. Proceeds from the run will be split evenly between the Moore High School Alumni Association, Westmoore High School Alumni Association, and Southmoore High School student fund.

    Since 1988, Lions and Jaguars have sparred against one another in a race to determine the big cat in town. When it comes to Moore War, rivalries run deep and emotions run high. Each August, alums from Moore and Westmoore, as well as members of the community, put aside their differences to come together for a common cause–current students.

  • 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.
