With Confidence and Pride
Edited by Sherwood Young

Policing the Wellington Region 1840-1992

The book covers a wide range of locations, including, as it does, the region's police stations from Waikanae and Masterton in the north to the Chatham Islands in the south. Since police training was centralised in wellington, almost all the men and women who have assumed the responsibilities of the oath of office have begun their careers in the various training locations in the region - whether in the city or at Trentham or Porirua.

The police have assembled experts in their field to contribute to this book - historians, trainers, educators, administrators, journalists and frontline police - to produce an attractive and thoroughly researched record of the policing of a most important part of New Zealand. The extensive use of illustrations - maps and more than 600 photographs - adds to the reader's enjoyment. Also included are the names of over 2500 men and women who have served in the region since 1840. With Confidence and Pride will appeal to all who have an interest in New Zealand policing, and in the history of the Wellington area.
