An audience with Rowland ‘Rowley’ Moore MA

Former Chief Superintendent, Community Engagement Unit, Merseyside Police

Merseyside Police in partnership with National Museums Liverpool are hosting an afternoon of conversation and questions with Merseyside Police’s former Chief Superintendent Moore as part of Black History Month 2018.

Book your free ticket for this event on Eventbrite.

Ch. Supt. Moore joined Essex Police in 1986 and began his career on the beat working in Grays, Essex. Transferring to the Metropolitan Police in 1989, he spent 15 years working frontline uniform roles in East London. This included a sustained period of heightened racial tensions, which led to public scrutiny into ‘Stop & Search’ and latterly, the Stephen Lawrence enquiry. For Policing, this era was overshadowed by the belief that the Police were ‘institutionally racist’ a belief that was compounded following the Secret Policeman documentary. Rowley will take you through these experiences both in the Met and then following his transfer in 2003, in Merseyside, from the point of view of a Black police officer.

Rowley lived and worked through a progressive period in the Police’s history and this afternoon he invites you to share these experiences with him with the emphasis on questions from the room.

The event will be held at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Building in the Royal Albert Dock. Please come with questions and join us for what promises to be an engaging and insightful afternoon.

This is a free event and everyone is welcome. Please contact Joyce.Parr@liverpoolmuseums.org.uk if you have any particular access needs.

This event is part of our Black History Month event series.
