— Assistant U.S. Attorney Kimberly A. Moore has been selected to serve a one-year detail as resident legal adviser for the Office of
Overseas Prosecutorial Development, Assistance and Training in Kosovo.

OPDAT is a section of the U.S. Department of Justice that assists prosecutors and judicial personnel in other countries to develop and sustain effective criminal justice institutions.

Moore will help Kosovo's efforts to address corruption and human trafficking, and she will help citizens implement legal reforms to promote governmental integrity and accountability and to bring Kosovo’s criminal justice system into compliance with accepted international standards.

“We are proud Kim," U.S. Attorney George Holding said in a statement. "She works hard and is bright and energetic. Her excellent legal and interpersonal skills are well suited for the monumental task ahead.”

Moore earned undergraduate and law degrees from North Carolina Central University and has been an assistant U.S. attorney since 1999, specializing in narcotics trafficking cases.
