An open letter and plea for the public from Police Chief Milton Moore



Police Chief Milton Moore

From Chief Milton Moore:

“Days later this is still weighing on me. This week was bittersweet.

The Vicksburg Police was able to clear several violent cases. These cases ranged from drive by shootings, armed robberies, and aggravated assaults.

The disturbing part is that these violent crimes were all committed by juveniles. Two of the juveniles arrested were 15 years old, the other one was 17 years old. Even more disturbing, two of these kids were in court alone without ANY support from a parent, guardian, other family member or friend.

Yes I’m the Police Chief, but to see a child in front of a Judge, facing serious charges, with no one there to support them is disheartening.

As a community, we have to do better. We can’t turn our backs on our youth.

I will gladly sit down and talk to any child if the parent brought him/her to my office for some advice or guidance. This week should be evident that our youth need us all.”
