The City of Moore Police Department is continually striving to find ways to provide new and more effective Public Services. Programs, like the ones below, help us partner with the community and contribute to the quality of life in our city. See below for each Program's description.

The Moore Police Department has started a new program to help in solving crimes and recover stolen property. Many homes and businesses in Moore have private security cameras. We are asking for the community’s 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 video information can be utilized when a crime is reported in an area where we have cameras listed. The Police Department will 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.

(Operation ID) is a citizen’s burglary prevention program for use in homes and businesses. The Operation ID program involves marking property with an identifying number as a means of discouraging burglary and theft. It also provides police with a way to identify property should it be stolen and recovered. In communities where it has been properly implemented, Operation ID has shown dramatic results in burglary reduction.
Operation ID Has Two Basic Components
• Engrave your valuables with your drivers license number so your property can be easily traced and identified as yours. Please note—If your drivers license number is your Social Security Number, we strongly recommend you: a) obtain a new license with a new number, or b) obtain an Oklahoma State ID Card, which has a generic number and does not expire. Engrave as follows:
• OK####### 11 (year of expiration)
• Engrave in two locations: 1) one that can easily be seen, and 2) one that cannot easily be seen.
• Photograph or videotape items and keep the photos/tape in a fireproof safe or safety deposit box. Jewelry should be photographed with an ID card and ruler next to it to show ownership and size.
• Display a sticker that tells would-be burglars that your property has been marked.
What Makes Operation ID So Effective?
Marked property is difficult for a burglar to dispose of—it can be traced to the rightful owner with relative ease. And, if a burglar is caught with marked property, it is solid evidence of possession of stolen goods. After marking your property, make a list of your valuables, and keep a copy of the list in a safe place. If you should become a burglary victim, you will be able to quickly describe the stolen property from the list. This will be of great help to police in their attempts to recover stolen possessions. Once property has been marked and a list made, display the Operation Identification sticker on doors and windows that could be used for entry. By advertising your participation in Operation Identification in this way, you are announcing that your valuable property has been marked and will be difficult for a burglar to sell. Often, the presence of the sticker alone is enough to deter a burglar.
The items listed below are those most commonly stolen from homes, cars, and businesses:
*Mark These Possessions:
Bicycles, Binoculars, Camcorders, Cameras, Car audio systems, Computer equipment, DVD players, Fishing rods, reels, Golf clubs, Guns, Kitchen appliances, Lawn mowers, Microwaves, MP3 players, Musical instruments, Outboard motors, Radios, Stereo equipment, Telephones, Tools (hand/power), Televisions.
Note: Electric engravers can be purchased at hardware stores, or large department stores in the “tools” section.
The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program is a, state-of-the-art, crime prevention program designed to reduce crime, drugs, and gangs on apartment properties. This program was successfully developed at the Mesa Arizona Police Department in 1992. The International Crime Free Multi-Housing Program has spread to nearly 2,000 cities in 48 U.S. States, 5 Canadian Provinces, England, Nigeria, and Puerto Rico, to name a few.
The program consists of three phases that must be completed under the supervision of the local police department. Property managers can become individually certified after completing training in each phase and the property becomes certified upon successful completion of all three phases.
The anticipated benefits are reduced police calls for service, a more stable resident base, and reduced exposure to civil liability.
Crime Free Multi-Housing Program Benefits:
•A stable, more satisfied tenant base. Increased demand for rental units with a reputation for active management
•Lower maintenance and repair costs. Increased property values
•Improved personal safety for tenants, landlords, and managers
Costs of Drug Activity In Rental Property
When drug criminals and other destructive tenants operate out of rental property, neighborhoods suffer and landlords pay a high price. That price may include:
•Decline in property values — particularly when the activity begins affecting the reputation of the neighborhood
•Property damage arising from abuse, retaliation, or neglect; property damage from police raids
•Fire resulting from manufacturing or growing operations. Civil penalties, including temporary closure of the property — or even property seizure.
Loss of rent during the eviction and repair periods
•Fear and frustration when dealing with dangerous and threatening tenants. Increased resentment and anger between neighbors and property managers.
•The loss of other valued tenants
