LVMPD Corrections Officer Robert Moore Arrested on “Prostitution Related Crime”

Earlier this week it was reported that Robert Moore, an LVMPD corrections officer, had become the latest Metro cop to be arrested for a sex related crime. Although not many details were made public, it was disclosed that Officer Moore was arrested on December 23rd for what was described as a misdemeanor violation of the Unlawful Prostitution Act.

Via the Republic:

Las Vegas police say they arrested a fellow corrections officer nearly a week ago for a misdemeanor prostitution charge.

The department’s public information office said Monday that officers arrested Robert Moore on Dec. 23 for a misdemeanor violation of the Unlawful Prostitution Act.

The office released the information about Moore’s arrest after it closed on Monday. Court records and contact information for Moore or an attorney representing him were not immediately available, and Moore could not be reached for comment.

The statement makes no specific mention of what Moore is accused of doing.

Police say Moore has since been released from the Las Vegas City Jail and placed on paid administrative leave pending internal and criminal investigations. The statement says Moore has been with the department since May 2005.

Officer Moore is just the latest Las Vegas cop to join the ever increasing ranks of sex offenders wearing a badge. Earlier this year, a LVMPD detective was arrested after beating a prostitute while on duty when she attempted to charge him more than the price they had previously agreed on. In May, Metro Officer Patrick Taylor was arrested on child porn charges. Also this year, a former NLV police chief admitted that he didn’t conduct a proper investigation and then destroyed evidence related to child porn on the North Las Vegas Mayor’s computer. In another incident, a Las Vegas court marshal sexually assaulted a woman during court, then had her arrested when she complained to the judge about it.

Patrick Taylor Facing Child Porn Charges

On Wednesday (May 27, 2015), Patrick Taylor turned himself in on charges involving child pornography, stemming from a March 19th raid on his house after investigations by the LVMPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and Internal Affairs Bureau. According to Metro, he is being charged with a single count of possession of child pornography and two counts of distribution of child pornography. In spite of the seriousness of those charges, he has been released without bail after his initial court appearance at the Regional Injustice Center in Las Vegas, which took place Wednesday morning. The only conditions being that he promise not to contact his victim or to access the internet or social media.

Anybody that has been paying attention in recent times undoubtedly has noticed that one of the many crimes on the rise within the ranks of police officers are sex crimes. It’s getting rare when even a week goes by that CopBlock.org isn’t posting a story about a cop being caught using their position to rape or in some other way sexually exploit someone. In fact, this isn’t even the only time in recent history that a Las Vegas cop has been caught, as the LVRJ’s article about this case points out.

Via the Las Vegas Review Journal:

Taylor isn’t the first Metro officer to face child porn allegations in recent months. Metro officer James Henry, 37, pleaded guilty in December to one count of possessing a visual presentation depicting sexual conduct of a child. He was sentenced to four years on probation in April. Henry was originally charged with 10 counts of child pornography possession. Prosecutors said several images were found on an online storage account that belonged to him.

The 12-year department veteran was arrested in October after an investigation into child pornography on his Google cloud account. Henry worked as a patrol officer in Metro’s Convention Center Area Command, which includes the Strip.

In addition, there is the case of the woman, who was sexually assaulted by a Las Vegas court marshal (see video below) and then arrested for reporting it to a judge (that ignored her complaints), a detective, who assaulted the hooker he was visiting (while on duty and driving his police vehicle) after she increased the price on him, and that’s just within Las Vegas in recent times. As you can also see by the quoted LVRJ article above, Taylor’s child porn predecessor, James Henry, only received probabtion for his crimes and exploitation against children. Yet another example of the lack of accountability that these cops have come to expect from the “Justice System” and, no doubt, one of the explanations for this influx of criminals in general within the police departments nationwide.
