Publisher Description

This book is an eclectic mix of stories that range from the beginnings of the NZ Police from the Armed Constabulary in 1886; through the political machinations of the government of the time and the Police Commissioner Cullen in their dealing with Rua Kenana, of the Tuhoe tribe in the Uruweras in 1916; the sinking of the Wahine in 1968 and the subsequent police response. He also recounts in detail various notable murders and incidents that accelerated change in the New Zealand Police with tactics and administration. The story of the hunt for Stanley Graham near Hokitika on the West Coast in October 1941, and the subsequent shooting of seven people, five being Police officers further cements his view of the negative impact upon police attitudes and tactical responses in a somewhat negative way for the next two decades.
