*Officer Involved Shooting:
On November 8, 1975, Officer Moreno’s first test of use of force and restraint came on his first ride-a-long while in the Los Angeles Police Academy. Officer Moreno was partnered with two seasoned Wilshire Division Officer’s, Brophy and Wilder. At 2155 hours our unit 7A77 received a 211 (Armed Robbery) Silent at 4222 Pico Blvd., (a Kentucky Fried Chicken Restaurant).
(Excerpt) Ultimately one of two armed suspects exited the business employee door located directly onto the sidewalk. Our vehicles right front tire was W/B against the street-curb between the sidewalk and the business door. The armed suspect, Claude Milton (deceased) exited the door with a female employee hostage using her as a shield. Officer Moreno used the police vehicles right rear door for cover and was closest to the suspect and hostage. At one point Officer Moreno considered a head shot, however, the hostage’s position and movement made it much too dangerous to take the shot. At that precise moment a shot rang out from the left. A J-Car (Juvenile Police Vehicle) had just arrived and one of the plain clothes officers made a remarkable shot striking the suspect at which time the hostage reeled to the right and separated herself from the suspect. Instantly a hail of shot-gun and revolver fire opened up, 47 shots and 27 hits later, the suspect fell to the sidewalk dead. The other armed suspect surrendered and released the four additional hostages un-harmed. Officer Moreno was the only officer to check his fire.

*A Christmas Story 01/28/81
The purpose of this letter is to act as a “Letter of Appreciation” to the Los Angeles Police Department, in particular Officer Moreno and his partner.
On Dec. 24, 1980 Christmas Eve, my family and I were traveling to Orange County to visit my folks who we haven’t seen for a year. We were traveling on the I-5 when our car ceased to function. We attempted to find help so we exited at Boyle Heights (Hollenbeck District) and found ourselves stranded in a gas station at nightfall. After failing to find any assistance in that area we began calling tow companies. It was at this time we saw Officer Moreno frisking five suspects at the same station. After he completed his duties he took the initiative and effort to drive over to where we were parked to advise us of the potentially dangerous spot we were in. After telling him we could not even drive up on the freeway and had no luck in obtaining a tow. He radioed in for a AAA tow truck (which I am not a member of) since they would furnish the officer with an ETA. About this time it was getting dark and my wife and children were very upset. It seems that we had all the right elements the neighborhood could use, a nice car, full of Christmas presents, luggage, money, and a blond wife.
Officer Moreno decided to stay until the tow truck arrived. During this time Officer Moreno had to perform other police duties (searching suspects) which he performed in a very professional manner. While later being very courteous to my family during our wait for the tow truck.
This was not the end though, when the tow truck arrived the driver was not to keen on the idea of towing us to Buena Park on Christmas Eve. Officer Moreno convinced the driver that this would be in the best interest of my family and the situation at hand.
Officer Moreno and his partner’s efforts, for which they should be commended, helped avoid what could have been the worst Christmas Eve of our lives.
In retrospect my family and I greatly appreciate the professional courtesy afforded us by the Los Angeles Police Department and in particular Officer Moreno and his partner.
Much thanks, Lee Sanna and family
*Monte Vista Street Elementary School 03/26/81
Dear Captain Robert Smitson:
On behalf of the parents and community of Monte Vista Street School I would like to take this opportunity to commend Officer Moreno. On Wednesday, March 25, 1981 Officer Moreno conducted a most informative presentation on the topic of a serious crime problem which has been occurring in our school community area. Several women have been raped by an individual utilizing a similar method of operation.
Officer Moreno very effectively conveyed the concern of the Northeast Division regarding these acts of violence. He enlisted the cooperation of our community to assist Northeast police officers in the apprehension and subsequent arrest of the individual suspected in these crimes. His presentation was clear, concise and extremely instructive.
In addition to conducting an outstanding discussion, Officer Moreno demonstrated a friendliness, concern and willingness to actively involve himself by the conveyance of information regarding this topic of urgent concern to our community.
By presenting this topic to our P.T.A., Officer Moreno enthusiastically displayed his commitment to the importance of open communication between the Los Angeles Police Department and the community groups. The P.T.A. and the administration of Monte Vista Street School feels that positive experience such as this presentation will help to encourage cooperation and will, in addition, foster improved attitudes between the Los Angeles Police Department and members of our community. Again, I wish to commend Officer Moreno for his presentation and extend a personal “thank you” from our community.
