Salisbury native Moose new executive officer in Adult Corrections

RALEIGH — Gov. Bev Perdue announced Thursday that Salisbury native Tim Moose has been named executive officer for the Division of Adult Corrections effective Jan. 1.
Rep. W. David Guice, a Republican from Transylvania County, has been named director of Community Corrections for the new Department of Public Safety and will succeed Moose.
“I am humbled and appreciate the opportunity to serve in this key role,” Guice said. “Many improvements have been made in community corrections under Gov. Perdue’s leadership, and I look forward to building on those advances and on the achievements under Tim Moose. I appreciate all the staff’s hard work.”
Gov. Perdue said in a news release that “government’s most important responsibility is public safety. Rep. Guice’s appointment reflects my continued commitment to protecting our communities and putting the best technology and information in the hands of those on the front lines of that effort. His appointment also highlights how far I am willing to reach across party lines to work together.”
Guice has served as a member of the state House of Representatives since 2009. He retired from the Department of Correction in February 2009 after a 30-year career including service as a probation officer, a chief probation parole officer and a parole services manager overseeing operations in 27 western counties.
A native of Buncombe County, he earned his bachelor’s degree in social work at Mars Hill College.
Perdue said Moose “has done an outstanding job as director of Community Corrections and will continue to be a valuable asset on the Adult Corrections leadership team.”
“I am excited about the challenge and opportunity to work closely with David and Adult Corrections leadership as we continue moving forward on corrections issues,” Moose said.
Moose, who had headed Community Corrections since April 2009, is a 27-year probation veteran who began his career as a probation officer in Wake County. During his tenure, he has managed the division’s electronic house arrest program, intensive supervision programs, special operations and legislative and policy issues.
Moose, an East Rowan High School graduate, earned his political science degree at N.C. State University, with a concentration in criminal justice.
In December 2010, Gov. Perdue directed that the departments of Crime Control and Public Safety, Correction and Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention be consolidated into one agency to streamline government and reduce duplication. The change becomes effective Jan. 1.
The new Department of Public Safety will be the largest state agency in North Carolina with more than 25,000 employees. Perdue appointed Reuben F. Young as secretary of the department, which will include three major divisions – Law Enforcement, Adult Corrections and Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
