NOW: Reggie Moore leaving Milwaukee’s Office of Violence Prevention at end of April

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Reggie Moore, the director of Milwaukee's Office of Violence Prevention, will leave the city at the end of this month to take a job at the Medical College of Wisconsin.

He will be joining the college's Comprehensive Injury Center as the director of violence prevention, where he will form a team focused on policy at the local, state and national levels.

Mayor Tom Barrett appointed Moore in 2016 to lead the Office of Violence Prevention in the city's health department.

During his five years with the city, his team launched Blueprint for Peace, the city's first comprehensive plan to curb violence.

They also launched 414 Life Team, which is focused on stopping violence and giving support to people hurt by gunfire and their families.

"I'm grateful to the city, to the mayor of the Common Council, the various health commissioners over the years, for providing this opportunity also having a serious commitment to addressing violence as a public health issue," Moore said."

Mayor Barrett has yet to announce a replacement for Moore.
