Book Descriptions :
The Author has produced a unique story of his experiences as a police officer in the South Australian Police Force from the 1960's to 2000 His story of early childhood and education is a snapshot of life in the 1940's and 50's and is a rather sad and tragic beginning for him.He goes on to describe his police training and early experiences as a Probationary Constable in Adelaide, South Australia and his description of his very first arrest which he has never forgotten.The real story begins when he is posted to the remote, one man police station at Penong on the Nullarbor Plain where he is responsible for 35,000 square miles of arid country on his own. His experiences really get the reader's attention.His dealings with the primitive , full blood aboriginal people and their tribal ways and living as he experienced it, will leave the reader glued to the book The incidents he dealt with on his own involving dangerous criminals and his unique way in handling them are riveting The help and assistance of his wife in this remote area of South Australia are an insight into the difficult conditions at that time, faced by police families and how the police officers could not have done their job without the unheralded assistance of their wives.His progression through the ranks and his subsequent postings to other country areas, especially Marree at the beginning of the Birdsville Track in the far North of South Australia, also make for interesting reading.Towards the end of the book the story takes on a different theme as he becomes more of an administrative officer in charge of a large regional city police station with a staff of over 50 officers.His involvement in the community is interesting and the disagreements with the police hierarchy andvarious community groups he describes with candour.The author's style of writing is easy to read, amusing, and detailed it is one of those "cannot put down " books that has the reader enthralled to the end
