It is also the story of the Hikurangi district, its people and how it has changed in that time.Police have unparalleled access to all levels of society, they see us in the raw and deal with the dark side of life, the side that those of us in safe comfortable positions do not want to know about. Gavin dealt with crimes of murder, violence, drugs, thefts, petty vandalism and also with accidents from the horrific to the bizarre to the funny.This is a story of New Zealand rural life.Typically patrolling in t-shirt and sandals, Benneys style of policing may have raised disapproval from his superiors but he earned the trust of the community, boosted in part by his active role in the local sports scene.How Benney negotiated this trust is fascinating and his access to the raw, dark and at times hilarious scenes in the lives around him is unparalleled.

Reflecting on the massive culture shift in the police force and how his style often chafed with media, the legal system, politicians and the NZ Police, Benney is proud to note statistics back up his approach.Horrific accidents, domestic violence, vandalism and lecherous landlords, performing CPR, recovering fly blown bodies from the sea ----Country Cop 24/7 is a compulsive read.
