Monday, June 4, 2012

LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts on Friday, June 1 presented the Sheriff’s Medal, which is the highest law enforcement honor that the sheriff can bestow, to Lexington County Sheriff’s Department Deputy James Moore, who will retire as the school resource officer at Pelion High School effective on June 30.

Metts recognized Moore for the outstanding service that Moore has provided to students, parents, faculty and staff while he has worked full-time as the school resource officer at Pelion High. On November 21, 1994, Metts appointed Moore, 61, of Columbia, to serve as a deputy.

“James has a big heart and served as a father figure for many students at Pelion High, who knew that James would provide them with sound advice about all aspects of their lives,” Metts said. “James is truly dedicated to fulfilling our agency’s mission of providing professional law enforcement services that enhance the quality of life for all people in Lexington County.”

Moore often took money out of his own pocket in order to buy lunch at school for children who did not bring lunch from home and could not afford to buy lunch at school, Metts said. Moore also paid for ice cream treats for seniors at Pelion High who finished in the top 10 percent for academic average in their graduating classes.
