About Graham:

Over 30 years of Policing experience predominantly in London but worked across the UK.

Mostly uniformed operational Policing and specialised in Public Order and Policing Football and events.

Since retiring Graham has worked as a Policing analyst for Sky News and media commentator on Policing.

He is involved in teaching the pre-join Police CKP course, and he is passionate about all policing issues.

Keen football fan and equally keen golfer but no real ability in either!

Chris Hobbs was born and raised in Hackney, London.

He served for 32 years in the Met. During that time, he worked extensively and openly with the Asian community as a Special Branch officer in the 80's and 90's during periods of high tension.

Chris was presented with a ceremonial sword by the UK's largest Sikh temple shortly after retirement.

Before you go...

We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.

One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.

We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!

As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.

And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.

You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.

Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
