Tempe Police Chief - Sylvia Moir

Chief Sylvia Moir joined the Tempe Police Department as the Chief in March 2016.

 

A California native, Chief Moir has 29 years of local police experience. Her vast experience provided her a comprehensive perspective on the rewards and challenges of modern policing in integrated and progressive communities.

Chief Moir was the Chief of the El Cerrito Police Department from 2010 until her appointment as the Police Chief in Tempe, Arizona. In El Cerrito, Chief Moir strengthened the tactical and operational readiness of the department, enhanced training efforts to include Fair and Impartial Policing, Mindfulness in policing, launched intelligence and analytic functions for crime suppression, and initiated regional efforts in a variety of areas.

Chief Moir spent most of her early career with the Sacramento Police Department where she served in every division of the department. She was the Incident Commander on hundreds of planned and spontaneous events and a trainer in the Incident Command System.

Chief Moir was a member of the Sacramento Police Honor Guard for 14 years. She was part of funerals, ceremonial events, and she completed rigorous training with the US Army Old Guard at Fort Myer, VA and Arlington National Cemetery.

Chief Moir has been a facilitator and trainer for in-service and basic academy recruits in a variety of operational and administrative disciplines for over two decades. Chief Moir was appointed by California Governor Jerry Brown to the Commission on California Peace Officer Standards and Training for two terms, and she served on the Executive Committee for the California Police Chiefs Association. She is currently an Executive Fellow for the Police Foundation, on the Community Policing Committee of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, an advisor for the American Law Institute, and on the Law Enforcement Council for the U.S. Humane Society.
