Eddie Moore officially filed his candidacy for Hamilton County Sheriff Friday.
Moore has been a Hamilton County Sheriff's deputy since 1987. He received his bachelor’s degree from Anderson University and began his profession upon graduation.
He has been assigned in all divisions of the department, including leadership positions in patrol, the jail – as both Assistant Jail Commander and Jail Commander – and in administration as public information officer, Professional Development and as the agency's first DARE officer, serving 10 years at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, St. Maria Goretti, Orchard Park Elementary and Sheridan Schools.
Currently Moore serves in patrol as night shift B Commander with the rank of lieutenant. He is also certified law enforcement trainer in a wide array of subjects to include leadership ethics and leadership development.
Moore completed Northcentral University's graduate program earning a master’s degree specializing in Organizational Leadership in 2014.
“This academic preparation combined with nearly 31 years of law enforcement experience provides unique qualifications unmatched by other candidates, to work along-side members of the community and law enforcement to train and provide the best law enforcement practices based upon research and industry standards,” Moore said. 
Moore said he plans to provide as the next Hamilton County Sheriff, servant-leadership building a culture of leaders throughout the organization from the newest employee to the CEO who will model what the law enforcement Code of Ethics states in its first sentence, "The paramount duty of a law enforcement officer is to serve." The elected Sheriff should be held to this above all others and I will strive to uphold this.
“Hamilton County is a wonderful place to live and one of the many reasons is the excellent law enforcement agencies throughout the county. (I) intend to lead the Sheriff's Office in collaboration with the other Chiefs of Police so we can continue to keep the whole county as safe as possible,” Moore said. “This cannot be done without residents, business leaders, civic organizations, the faith community and such also working with us. (I) believe our officers should be hired, trained and held accountable to the highest character traits and, along with his current team he proudly serves with, have formally agreed to hold each other accountable to a "Code of Honor" based upon values and vision of what we should be as well as the agency.”
Moore is married to Brenda Moore after meeting at Anderson University and they have three adult children Dani, Caleb and Cody Silas and a 10 year old, Micah. Brenda is a Human Resource professional at Johnson Controls. They have lived in Noblesville and currently live in Fishers. The Moores have attended Trinity Church for 28 years.
