MAYS LANDING- On July 6, 2021, Megan Moore was sworn in by Honorable Bernard Delury, Jr. P.J. Cr., as an ACPO Assistant Prosecutor, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner announced. Assistant Prosecutor Moore is a 2017 graduate of the Beasley School of Law at Temple University and she previously served as an Appellate Judicial Law Clerk to an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Assistant Prosecutor Moore said her interest in law and policy began at an early age, as she was not only an avid reader, but also enjoyed working in communities both similar and different from her own. Assistant Prosecutor Moore was committed to help educate, inspire, and provide aid through working in a prominent bilingual non-profit community center and interning for the State Senate of Pennsylvania.
Before attending law school, Assistant Prosecutor Moore continued learning about diverse networks within communities and subsequently focused on subject areas specifically tailored to the field of law. She was motivated most by environmental protection and started reading about environmental remediation, statutes, and other scientific and technical matters; until she interned for the Office of Administrator Lisa P. Jackson at U.S. EPA Headquarters, and later completed several summers and semesters from college into law school of Honors Law Clerk programs and full time work at EPA Headquarters in Washington D.C.
In addition to the environment, Assistant Prosecutor Moore found a strong interest in journalism. She studied aspects of media law at The George Washington University and worked as a Student Reporter for the GW Hatchet – where she interviewed Virginia’s 100 Supreme Court Justice. Within the Department of English, Assistant Prosecutor Moore worked as a Media Relations Liaison to help publicize, plan, and promote speaking events for Jewish Literature Live – a GW seminar that hosts renowned, award-winning and international bestselling authors and writers of Jewish American Literature to the GW and surrounding community.
Perhaps what energizes Assistant Prosecutor Moore the most is her desire for organizational and humanitarian solutions for policy and social problems at all levels of government. She identified the work of a Prosecutor as an ideal space to learn more about the foundational state and local levels of criminal law and governance. As these areas are so crucial to a society that truly cares for its citizens and individuals [or simply, ‘people’], being an Assistant Prosecutor for Atlantic County is a role that Assistant Prosecutor Moore holds very carefully, genuinely and close.
