Lt. Moore settling in as head of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office detective bureau

(Hillsboro) Lieutenant Matt Moore with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office has been leading the detective bureau since spring. Moore was promoted to the position following several promotions after the retirement of Major Gary Higginbotham in March of this year. Lieutenant Moore says he has set some goals for what he and the department would like to accomplish in 2023.

Lieutenant Moore says building better cases makes it much easier to get charges and warrants issued.
