The History of Policing in New Zealand Volume Two: The Colonial Frontier Tamed New Zealand Policing in Transition 1867-1886

Author(s): Richard S. Hill


Examines the various forms which policing took in a period when both Maori and pakeha society moved from relative turbulence to relative quiescence: provincial forces, the Armed Constabularyin its fighting and demilitarised phases, and the the Police Branch and Reserve/Field Division of the New Zealand Constabulary Force. This book traces the socio-political evolution of policing, which was at this time being centralised. It also contains much more: battles and murders, strikes and scandals, riots and pathos.
