MINOT – Many police officers work hard and even risk their lives for their community, and some even take extra time out of their day to help those in need.
Aaron Moss has been a police officer since 1994 and serving the Minot area for over 18 years. He is a past-president of the North Dakota Fraternal Order of Police and is now the second vice president.
Moss has helped put on events such as Stuff a Squad and Cops and Kids, to donate toys and other items to kids in need. Both, Moss said, are signature events at the end of the year for law enforcement to give back to the community.
“We like to support the community, and this is two big events we do each year for that purpose,” said Moss.
Though this is only the sixth year for the Stuff a Squad event, Moss said the Cops and Kids event has been going on for over two decades.
When he’s not on the job, Moss has several hobbies he enjoys.
“I enjoy reading, movies, traveling,” Moss explained. “And now that the pandemic has slowed to the point where we can do that again, I’m pretty excited to get back to that again. I like to, every once in a while, leave the state.”
Moss said he also enjoys just being a police officer.
