Former Thurston County Deputy Gets State’s Highest Law Enforcement Honor After Being Stabbed Saving Woman
Former Thurston County Deputy Andrea Moore was honored during the May 6 Washington State Law Enforcement Medal of Honor and Peace Officers Memorial Ceremony after she survived being stabbed while likely saving a woman from being sexually assaulted in 2021.
Moore was presented with the Law Enforcement Medal of Honor, the highest honor given to any law enforcement in the state, by Gov. Jay Inslee.
Moore, now an officer with the Lacey Police Department, was working an overtime detail March 26 when she responded to a report of a suspicious person in the Nisqually Pines community just outside of Yelm.
