This is an auction for ZERO-ALPHA: THE NZ POLICE ARMED OFFENDERS SQUAD OFFICIAL HISTORY, by Ray Van Beynen.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Ray Van Beynen’s childhood ambition was to join Police – and the career has never disappointed him, providing 'a number of experiences of a lifetime.' Ray, who has retired as OFCANZ Deputy Director, joined Police in 1976 with the 64 Frank Gordon Wing. After two years in uniform he trained in Auckland CIB, mainly the drug squad under future Commissioner, then Detective Sergeant, Peter Marshall. Ray’s name will always be linked with the Armed Offenders Squad, which he served for 19 years including terms commanding Auckland AOS and STG. 'One of the things I’m most proud of is the development of the AOS and STG into the highly professional and well-regarded units they are today,' he says. Zero-Alpha, the squad’s official history, was a four-year labour of love as he travelled the country for research and wrote in his spare time.
