Troop K - West Palm Beach

Trooper Neil P. Moore has been selected as recipient of the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month award for October, 1998, based on his lifesaving actions at the scene of a traffic crash.

On October 21, 1998, at 1:30 p.m., Trooper Moore responded to a traffic crash, with a vehicle in the canal. Upon arriving at the scene, Trooper Moore and two motorists entered the canal where the vehicle had submerged. Moore forcefully entered the vehicle by breaking out the right front window, then cut the seatbelt off of the driver before he was able to remove him from the vehicle. Trooper Moore and a motorist administered CPR on the victim, Mr. Robert James Flowers, and were able to revive him at the scene. During this rescue, Moore sustained cuts on his hand, as well as scratches and abrasions on his arms.

Trooper Moore is hereby commended for his courageous actions which resulted in the lifesaving rescue of Mr. Flowers. Moore is a nine-year veteran of the Florida Highway Patrol assigned to Troop K, West Palm Beach.
