Chief Superintendent Malcolm Graham
Hailing originally from the Scottish Borders, via the University of Stirling, Chief Superintendent Malcolm Graham joined Lothian and Borders Police in 1995 and started policing at Gayfield Square Police Station in Edinburgh. He has worked in a number of patrol and investigative roles in each rank, both locally and nationally.
As a Senior Investigating Officer since 2003 he has investigated numerous high profile crimes and incidents, including in December 2004 when he was appointed as Senior Investigating Officer for Scottish victims of the tsunami in South East Asia.
More recently he has held the position of Detective Superintendent with lead responsibility for public protection, during which time he led on Child Protection and Crime Scene Management for ACPOS.
In August 2008 he was promoted to the post of Head of the Criminal Investigation Department for Lothian and Borders Police, leading on tackling serious and organised crime, major crime investigation, countering terrorism, intelligence and public protection for the force. He led on behalf of ACPOS in Counter Terrorism Investigations, Sexual Crime Investigation and worked with key partners in developing new approaches to victim services.
In 2008 he was awarded a M.Sc. with merit in Police Leadership, and in 2012 completed the Strategic Command Course at the Police Leadership College for the United Kingdom at Bramshill.
He was appointed as Divisional Commander for the City of Edinburgh in June 2012, with responsibility for all policing across the City in advance of the significant transition from Lothian and Borders Police to the single Police Service for Scotland in April 2013.
Chief Superintendent Graham has recently completed the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy accredited programme in Corporate Governance.
He is a keen yet extremely amateur cyclist, runner, swimmer and surfer although not necessarily in that order, and enjoys relaxing with family and friends, usually through a variety of outdoor pursuits.
