Nina Hobson    

Private Investigator, Former Undercover Crime Detective & TV Journalist

A business owner, private investigator and bodyguard with over 28 years experience in undercover operations, working on high profile cases, locally, nationally and internationally.

Nina began her career in the UK in the Leicestershire Constabulary. She displayed tenacity and determination in her police role with an interest in protection for dignitaries, child protection, undercover operations, surveillance and investigations. She worked on cases that involved kidnapping, murders, drugs, vice and deception. She was the recipient of four commendations that she received in her role as a Detective in CID and major crime.

After 15 years in policing Nina decided to explore her media skills. Determined to make the move to TV, Nina walked the streets of London to every scout asking to be considered for a role and was refused by all bar one who saw her potential.

Through hard work and determination, Nina made her break into TV as the presenter of a number of programs often with a controversial topic. Ideally placed as she was not afraid to ask the hard questions.

It made sense to take her detective skills to television where she has put her training and experience in surveillance, interrogation and informant-running to good use in Broadcast Investigation and Journalism. The most noted documentary being Undercover Copper, exposing corruption in the UK Police Force. Here she risked everything, including prison, in her fight for justice.

An accolade to Nina’s work and subsequent changes in legislation was a nomination for UK Woman of the year in 2006.Her unprecedented behind-the-scenes footage in Undercover Copper resulted in a number of award nominations.

This led to a further hit series, Undercover Mum, seeing Nina working undercover to reveal organizations and individuals harming kids.

Nina took on drug dealers, fake doctors and violent loan sharks, infiltrating their world in order to expose criminal and dangerous activities.

In 2008, Nina and her family relocated to Perth Western Australia where Nina became the Founder and Owner of a highly successful Security & Investigation company, Owl Protectors and Investigators.

As one of a only a handful of licensed female bodyguards, Nina has many a story to tell including celebrity tantrums and real life risks to her life. Nina is happy to tell you the reality of someone taking a hit out on her life and the effect that has on her family, friends and her own perspectives.

For the past eight years, Nina has worked with the “Save the Africa Rhino Charity”, working alongside the anti-poaching unit on the front line, risking her life to save these endangered species. Nina is passionate about her charity work and this, along with her desire to make a difference is an inspiration to us all.

You have to hear Nina’s story to believe it.

Her professional, enthusiastic and real-life experiences inspire and motivate you as her talks make you laugh, cry and realize that we can all achieve so much.

Nina’s autobiography, warts and all, has been completed and hopefully will be published soon.
