Dinolfo created the office earlier this year.
Moore is also currently the county’s public safety director.
Previously, he was the Rochester Police Chief, under former Mayor Robert Duffy, from 2006 to 2010, as well as the director of the city’s Office of Public Integrity, from 2010 to 2011.
“With a lifetime of experience in law enforcement, as well as the professional and personal qualities essential to do the job, I am proud to entrust this role to David Moore,” Dinolfo stated. “David is the perfect candidate to head this important office, and I look forward to him establishing the Office of Public Integrity with full autonomy, and independence.”
One of Dinolfo’s first acts in office was creating the Office of Public Integrity, in an effort to examine county operations, and review government functions after controversy surrounding the county’s recent partnerships with corrupt Local Development Corporations (LDCs), under former County Executive Maggie Brooks’ administration.
According to Dinolfo, Moore was instrumental in the dissolution of those LDCs.
In addition, Moore released the following statement regarding his appointment:
“Public service is an honor, and we should never forget that our first priority is to uphold the interests of the taxpayers. The Office of Public Integrity will be a watchdog agency, and I am pleased to bring my law enforcement experience with me to the position. I am now seeking certification to become an Inspector General, and will use this expertise and knowledge, in my new focus in the Office of Public Integrity, ensuring the highest standard of ethics, and transparency, are practiced in Monroe County.”
Moore has over 35 years of law enforcement experience, total.
