Tree-change for police officer

Posted: 4pm 07 Apr 2022

A tiny township in the Moreton Police District has welcomed a new police officer.

Moore, about 82km west of Caboolture, is home to about 300 people and is a popular stop for motorcyclists.

Senior-Constable Brayden Tucker and his family are looking forward to a change of pace.

Sen-Constable Tucker has spent the past eight years working in Fortitude Valley and in the Brisbane City bike squad.

Connecting with community

Looking for a lifestyle change away from the hustle and bustle, his family was keen to make the move without going too far from extended family and friends.

“What I want to achieve at Moore is to become involved within the community and reduce the road-related trauma along the D-Aguilar corridor,” Sen-Constable Tucker says.

“I am also looking forward to being brought on as the official Adopt-A-Cop by the Linville State school on April 26.”
