Roy Howard Moore
(A biographical sketch from a Chester Times or Delaware County Daily Times newspaper clipping, "Know Your Police" from the collection of John C. "Snakes" Boyle, contributed by his granddaughters, Jane Boyle & Patty Boyle.)

Roy Howard Moore, 39, of 120 W. 5th st. has been on the Chester police force since Mar. 15, 1949. For the last two years he's worn the white cap that marks him as a traffic officer.

He worked at Scott Paper Co. for a total of five years, split by military service, as a "back tender." In that job he kept his eye on the material coming out of the paper making machines to see that it passed inspection.

In the Army he rose to the rank of a first sergeant and spent 2 1/2 years with the Infantry in the South Pacific. He went into the Army on Jan. 7, 1941, and was honorably discharged on Nov. 13, 1945.

Educated in Chester public schools, he graduated from Smedley Junior High and has attended three police schools.

Boxing and football, as a spectator, are his hobbies.
