Born in York, Mike Pannett joined the London Metropolitan Police in 1988, and became one of the youngest officers in service to be given his own patch. He went on to serve on the Divisional Crime Squad, Robbery Squad, Murder Squad and the TSG (Riot Police), where he was also trained in surveillance.

In January 2010 Mike became a “Patron of Yorkshire”.
