To begin with, the boy was raised in Pendleton, Oregon. He earned a social science diploma before joining the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Department at the very beginning of 1969. In the 1980s, he served as the head of the drug and vice unit, and was subsequently appointed to serve as the sheriff of the county following the early retirement of former sheriff Robert G.

Meantime, in 1989 and 1990, the sheriff’s office appeared in 15 episodes of the reality TV series “COPS”, and in 1991 he appeared in 13 episodes of another reality series entitled “American Detective”. As a Lieutenant, John Bunnell appeared in both series and introduced the first season of “American Detective”. He is often referred to as Sheriff John Bunnell despite being inactive of his duties. Currently, his son Mark is a sergeant in the County Department – he was first seen with his father in an episode of the series “COPS” in 1989.

In addition, a number of appearances in the series “COPS” directing cases against illegal drugs led him to present “World’s Wildest Police Videos”, the program in which he became famous. He was considered an icon to follow by his fans, because of his casual style of commenting in the program. From 1998 to 2002, Bunnell described several situations that appeared in the series, and offered personal opinions about the police and the criminals who were being pursued, while using innuendos and double entendre phrases. Moreover, Bunnell lent his voice to the Sony PlayStation “World’s Scariest Police Chases” game.
