Miami Dade College's Police Academy Chief Has a Troubled History

Richard Moss
In this week's New Times, we profile Richard Moss, basic training director of Miami Dade College's School of Justice, who has a troubled past. We investigate Moss, who was demoted from chief to commander when he was with the Broward Sherriff's Office because of insubordination.

The report also documents complaints filed against Moss when he was chief of the Woodstock Police Department in Georgia. He landed a $85,000-a-year gig as the college's police academy chief despite his questionable track record.

When we contacted Moss for comment, he referred us to college spokesman Juan Mendieta. After we waited several days for a response, Mendieta declined to comment. "This matter remains under internal review," Mendieta said. "We have no further comment at the present time."

Moss's past is an issue because he is in charge of molding new generations of law enforcement officers. Already, a school employee complained to Moss's supervisors that his attitude sucks and that he has no respect for his colleagues, a trend that began when he was with BSO. Below you can read memos and other public documents detailing Moss's transgressions when he was with Broward.
