NZ Dectectives

Who are the tenacious detectives solving New Zealand's most serious crimes?

This three part documentary series gives viewers a privileged glimpse into the gritty world of the Detectives of the CIB - The Criminal Investigation Branch of the NZ Police.

Handpicked and highly trained, the Detectives target killers, rapists, robbers and crooks and deliver them to justice.

NZ Detectives asks: who are the unheralded investigators responsible for cracking our most baffling and notorious crimes? How do they do it? Above all, what drives their determination to dismantle a crime, piece by painstaking piece, in their dogged quest to unlock the truth?

'It's a giant jigsaw puzzle that gets thrown up in the air and you've gotta put it all together again.'  Detective Inspector Mike Arnerich

Produced with the complete co-operation from the NZ Police, NZ Detectives - In Pursuit of the Truth celebrates the painstaking work that this dedicated team undertake day-in and day-out.

Former and current Detectives shed light on the challenges of dealing with the very worst elements of our society, in interviews that are surprisingly frank and in equal parts amusing and chilling. 

Dramatisations bring to life the 'whodunnits' that they deal with and paint a picture of the worlds of violent crime.

NZ Detectives explores the untold stories behind some of the key moments in our nation's war on crime, as told by the men and women who must pick-up the pieces.
