These qualities defined Al in every aspect of his life and career after the Marines as well, qualities you will find when you work with Global Investigations: a tireless determination to uncover the truth, unparalleled professionalism in even the toughest situations, and a passionate commitment to the job at hand.

After the war, Al returned to the United States and completed his Associate’s Degree in Administration of Justice with Cerritos College, finishing this two-year degree in 18 months. Al soon joined the Los Angeles Police Department, and due to his unique and outstanding police record, Al was selected to work several specialized units within the department. Al was one of 36 police officers chosen from the ranks of the entire LAPD to launch what became the nation’s premiere specialized anti-gang unit, Operations Control Bureau C.R.A.S.H. (Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums).

While assigned to the Los Angeles Police Department’s gang unit, Al Moreno not only led his unit in arrests, but he was also frequently commended for his uncanny ability to arrest heavily armed suspects without the use of lethal force. His Bi-Annual Los Angeles Police Department RatingReportsand field commendations often noted this ability: “Regardless of how hectic the situation may be, Moreno never compromises completeness for speed. Officer Moreno displays particular skill when handling armed suspects, as he recovers more weapons in the field than any other C.R.A.S.H. officer yet has avoided involvement in an Officer Involved Shooting.”
