He began his career with the Atlanta Police Department in 2001 and was assigned to east Atlanta’s Zone 6, serving as a foot beat officer in Little Five Points and Virginia-Highlands. In 2003, Moorman was assigned to the Zone 3 precinct where he worked as a beat officer and on the crime suppression unit in the Mechanicsville, Pittsburgh, and Lakewood Heights Communities.
Moorman was promoted to sergeant in 2007 and assigned to the Zone 5 precinct where he worked as a patrol supervisor and later in the investigations unit.
In 2011, he was promoted to lieutenant and transferred to Zone 3 where his invaluable partnerships and investigative techniques resulted in an overall crime reduction rate of 19 percent.
In 2013, Moorman was chosen to serve as the deputy director of the High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Task Force, a task force of local, state and federal agents working under the authority of the President of the United States and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). As deputy director, he helped to oversee the execution of a $7 million annual budget and managed administrative responsibilities for sworn and civilian employees from over 30 law enforcement agencies. He served as the project manager for introducing the Nasal Naloxone (Narcan) Program to APD, which has given dozens of citizens who have struggled with drug abuse, the opportunity to turn their lives around.
Moorman was appointed to captain on January 1, 2015 and was assigned as the assistant commander for the Zone 5 precinct. During his tenure as the assistant commander, Zone 5 experienced significant decreases in crime, resulting in the APD overall Crime Reduction Award in 2016. After a successful time in Zone 5, in which he was recognized for outstanding work, Moorman assumed responsibilities as the assistant commander of the Major Crimes Section (MCS). In 2018, Moorman was assigned to serve as the night commander. In 2019, he was assigned as the assistant precinct commander at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (HJAIA). During his time as the assistant commander, HJAIA saw an overall decrease in crime of 15 percent.
In addition to his APD role, Moorman has served as an adjunct professor in the Criminal Justice Department at Atlanta Metropolitan State College and served as the first-ever senior public safety official at Mercedes-Benz Stadium (MBS) where he managed more than 150 law enforcement officers from multiple jurisdictions. Under his supervision, MBS was voted the #1 stadium for the safety and security of all NFL stadiums. In 2019, he worked with the leadership at Delta Air Lines to create a joint law enforcement/corporate security partnership to provide an innovative presence on the Delta Headquarters Campus.
Along with his commitment to law enforcement, public safety, and community outreach, Moorman serves on numerous boards that have influential regional impact. He currently serves as the Chair of the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) Critical Infrastructure/Key Resources Committee, as a member of the Atlanta Fire Rescue Paramedic Advisory Board and serves on the board of directors for the South Fulton Arrow Youth Council.
In 2020, Moorman was appointed to the rank of major and is currently assigned as the Community Oriented Policing Section Commander. He is excited about the opportunity to tap into the heartbeat of policing, which is working with the community to implement positive change.
