Without Fear or Favour: 150 years Policing Auckland 1840-1990
By Owen J. Cherrett

Contains numerous photos throughout.

Authors note:

I undertook the project knowing that the official three-volume history of the New Zealand Police was well into production. The first volume, `Policing The Colonial Frontier' by Richard S. Hill, was already published, one which would satisfy the needs of scholars and researchers. I decided not to write a history as such but rather an illustrated collection of historical events and anecdotes that I believed would complement the official work.
