Peter J. Moore
Peter J. Moore, the President and owner of Stealth Private Investigations has been a member of the Metro
Toronto Police Service, starting in August 1982, at the age of seventeen. He was the youngest Police Cadet
ever hired by the service, therefore able to acquire a great deal of knowledge and experience in policing
allowing a second career, Stealth Private Investigations and Court Agent Services. Mr. Moore spent seven
years with the Toronto Police, returning to his home town of Peterborough, Ontario, where he was accepted
as 'local boy returns home.' Mr. Moore left Metro to immediately join the Peterborough Police Service.
(Now entitled, 'Peterborough-Lakefield Community Police Service)
Early in Mr. Moore's police career while serving the public of Toronto as a 'Police Cadet,' colleagues
who were fully trained Constables made this remark. "Take every course the police service offer
and any other course outside of the service you can handle." This was taken to heart by
Mr. Moore therefore before turning 21 yrs of age when he would attain the status of Police Constable,
he was assigned to work detective offices, many different divisions, and was allowed to ride with
Training Officers on the streets of Toronto. (Much knowledge and experienced was acquired before
attending the Ontario Police College, where the formal training commenced.)
Peter MOORE, once trained, was sent to 51 Division, (Dundas and Parliament) one of the toughest
divisions of Toronto. During his second week with his training partner he received a commendation
for apprehending a fleeing fugitive who had shot a patron in the 'Ben Wicks' Tavern on Parliament Street.
The suspect fled on Parliament Street and Moore after quickly exiting the passenger side of the
police vehicle pursued the suspect two blocks. MOORE took down the suspect, making the arrest, who
had pulled the 9mm Beretta pistol (fully loaded) on Constable MOORE. No shots were fired and all
involved recovered. It was later learned that the gunman was on his way home to murder his wife and
two children. This seemed to launch Peter MOORE's career on the fast-track.
Mr. MOORE continued at '51 Division', and West Traffic Unit during his 7 years with Toronto, but also
trained in other areas of police work. He worked closely with the officers that began the Accident
Reconstruction program for Ontario which was broadened by two Metro Officers throughout Canada and
were widely accepted in North America. Peter MOORE had the privilege of working side by side with
these supervisors, learning this science. (Look under Accident Reconstruction or other services for details)
Mr. MOORE left Toronto in May 1989 to join his hometown police service; The Peterborough Police Service.
Peter's career truly was quickened in Peterborough attaining the rank of Detective-Constable before the
age of 30. Mr. MOORE worked with an eight member team and was the lead investigator on homicides, major
crime of all kinds. The variety of work has been so helpful to his clients in other private investigative
agencies where he was the 'Director of Operations,' and certainly has already shown Stealth's clients that
experience is the backbone to solving the diversified needs of those that retain this service.
While working in the detective office, Mr. Moore was reassigned to the 'Intelligence Branch' as he has
developed reliable information through informants. This information was required to be kept entirely
confidential and cannot be discussed, but allowed Mr. Moore to work with the FBI out of Washington, and
major crime units across Canada. The information acquired led to arrests and intelligence information
still used today. This exposed Mr. Moore to becoming acquainted and skilled in the area of surreptitious
and high end surveillance tactics, electronically or standard foot and car approaches.
During Mr. Moore's police career, he has been accepted and remains accepted as an Expert Witness in the
area of Accident Reconstruction and Forensic Animation in all court levels; minor traffic court, accident
court, Criminal Court of Canada, Civil Court. Mr. Moore was also earned status as a Breathalyzer Technician
for Ontario being trained out of the Centre of Forensic Sciences in Toronto. Mr. MOORE testified in the
Criminal Courts of Canada and was involved a major case law decision concerning the set-up and testing of
the Borkenstein Breathalyzer Models 900 and 900A. Over his career, Mr. MOORE collected approximately
800 Breathalyzer samples from arrested persons and close to 400 alcohol influence evaluations.
