About this artwork

Inspector Graham Gibb has completed thirty-one years service with Grampian Police. He has twenty-seven years mountain rescue experience, including twenty years as leader of the joint Grampian Police and Braemar Mountain Rescue Team. In 1996 he was honoured with an MBE for his services to mountain rescue. Over the years Graham has developed a personal interest in the behaviour of missing people and is now a leading expert in the field. There are fourteen officers in the Grampian Rescue Team and they have responsibility for some 500 square miles of mountainous terrain, including the Cairngorms National Park. This photograph was commissioned as part of a series titled ‘Force’, which reflects the breadth of activities that the Police service is involved with in Scotland.
