It is with deep sorrow we report the death of Correctional Officer Naomi Carroll-Moore, who passed away on Aug. 18, 2022.
Preliminary information indicates that Officer Carroll-Moore, 56, was participating in training on Aug. 16, 2022, at the North Carolina Correctional Institution for Women in Raleigh. Sometime after the training was complete, she experienced a medical emergency and was transported by EMS to a local hospital. Sadly, Officer Carroll-Moore died two days later.
Officer Carroll-Moore was hired as a correctional officer in 2003 and she worked in several prisons before leaving in 2009. She sought to return to the job and was rehired earlier this month, on Aug. 15, 2022.
“We are deeply saddened by Officer Carroll-Moore’s untimely death,” said Eddie M. Buffaloe, Jr., Secretary of Public Safety. “We offer our heartfelt sympathy to her family, friends and colleagues.”
