Graham Bell is the host of the long running and extremely successful television series "POLICE TEN 7".
Formerly Detective Inspector in charge of Criminal Investigations for the Bay of Plenty Police District.
With over 33 years in the NZ Police, most of it involved in investigating serious crime, Graham is one of New Zealand's most experienced and successful detectives. Widely recognised as an expert in homicide investigations, he has also shown a flair and talent for getting his message across in the media.
Graham has also led and conducted major enquiries into a range of criminal offending from art theft to rapes, complex fraud and drug trafficking.
Graham has achieved a reputation for straight talking and backing words with action.
Since changing his career from the police to television presenter in 2002 Graham has also become recognised as a highly entertaining speaker with a seemingly endless store of unique and fascinating stories with a strong accent on humour. He is also well equipped to pass on, and educate with, his media skills and experience.
In 2001 Graham was awarded the Queen's Service Medal in the Birthday Honours List and was named as one of 15 New Zealanders who had 'made a difference' in North and South Magazine's New Zealander of the Year issue.
Graham's unique experiences and razor sharp wit make him one of the funniest and most entertaining speakers available.
