Garry Moore PC 151 Garry Moore -  Forest, St Martins and St Andrews

Born in Norfolk, England, Garry moved to Guernsey in 1988 after serving in the Royal Navy for eight years.  He joined Guernsey Police in 1998 and saw the move as very much going back to his roots - working in a close environment with people from different backgrounds with different ideas.

Garry joined the Neighbourhood Policing Team in 2014 and sees the department as the best place to work in order to strike the perfect balance between working with other professional agencies and members of the community who need help. He is search team trained and also operates as a family liaison officer.

Garry's patch includes Forest, St Martins and St Andrews.
