Summary "2012 marks the 150th anniversary of the official formation of the NSW Police Force. From humble beginnings as a transplanted band of convict felons to today's finest, responsible for protecting 7 million people, True blue traces a remarkable journey through the experiences of its members. Vast archival material and photographs have been unearthed to illustrate stories of the characters and events that have shaped the Force over 150 years - the leaders, weapons, uniforms, transport, communications, training, recruitment, forensics, water police, police women, disasters, and terrorism. This impressive book highlights the heroes and the villians, and delivers a powerful insight into the heritage and work of the NSW Police."--Dust jacket gate fold
