Detective CIB Dayle Candy is looking forward to enjoying a holiday lunch with his family.
At eight o'clock A. M. she was called to rape.
She "took care of it" and she hardly came home when she was called to set fire.
After that, she squeezed on ham and Pavlova, and then took part in a double murder after the drug deal in East Cape Province got bad.
It's just another day of candy in the office.
The 61-year-old, a four-year-old mother and grandmother who retired from the Army in 2000, is now chasing houses on the street as a real estate agent in Auckland, not bad guys.
Just this weekend, before the 75 th anniversary of the women's policing event in the Bay, Candy proudly recalled her 26 years of serving the community, mainly in CIB, and rose to the rank of Senior Detective Officer in manucau County.
In his 80 s, who was stationed in Tauranga, Kandi recalled that 1989 marked the end of a sleepy innocence in a seaside town, scarred by a series of horrific murders.
Earlier in the same year, Candy took part in her first murder case in Tauranga, where a woman's throat was cut.
She then investigated the murder of an elderly Pukehina resident by a group of young men.
1989 is also one of the most notorious murders in the Gulf --24-year-
Old British backpacker Monica cantville was raped and strangled on her half-mountain trip to manganoui.
Three days after her friend reported her disappearance, she was naked and found 50 metres on the track under the mountain.
Candy joined the police in 1974 and was qualified as a detective in Auckland.
Arriving at Tauranga at the beginning of the age of 80, although she took on the job of being the only detective in a small station like catticati, it took her four years to be officially appointed, she thinks this is a woman.
"I have proven that I have dealt with everything, usually by myself.
In the first four years of Tauranga, I dealt with a series of rapists and gang rape and took away several bad guys.
"I still have my letter to apply for detective, in which I write that I feel I have been ignored as a woman.
There is a view that men in the field are more suitable for applications than local qualified female police officers.
"After four applications, I had to assert this, and luckily I received another transfer back to CIB.
Overall, the working environment is restrictive for women with only one female police officer having children and returning to work, simply because she has a sister who can take care of her children.
There was no day care at that time.
"Leaving Tauranga for another promotion in Auckland in 1990, Candy continued to investigate several top executives
In the case of homicide, the missing woman was later found murdered.

The police eventually charged and convicted the double murderer in 2000.

Two decades later, Furon's body was found, but despite a detailed investigation called Operation Daria, her murder remains unresolved.

When her child was still young, she received several death threats related to the case she was investigating. "I had a well-
Organized family life got a lot of support and my kids got great care from their father
My husband's family.
"Candy, as a detective, didn't wear a uniform and her suit was specially tailored because the jacket had to be armed with a gun.
She sometimes dresses them up beautifully with her heels, but she's not like Helen Millen's famous portrayal of fictional detective Jane tanison on TV.
Unlike Jane, she said, she never had the perfect hairstyle, drank whiskey, ran in high heels, and didn't sit outside the suspect's house for coffee and donuts.
Although she had to stay healthy, she joked that she had a lifetime membership for weight loss enthusiasts.
In order to spend the night shift, she was comforted by ice cream and milkshakes.
"You work shifts as a police officer, but you have your police family.
"Candy is happily married to a police officer who is still working in southern Auckland.
Since she was a police officer when she was young, she says, climate change will certainly give women more opportunities and equality.
"A lot of times I'm just funny, but I react a lot and my colleagues know he's crossed the line with me.
No more nonsense from that person.
You must have a sense of humor.
"Despite the challenges of the work, canddy said it was a very satisfactory career.
The hope of "correcting mistakes" always exceeds the terrible experience.
"You need courage, but it's worth it.
You have a lot of compassion for people and a close love for your colleagues.
"There are a wide variety of jobs, and you go out and walk and stay healthy.
Yes, there are some bad things and bad people, but you are encouraged from the fact that you are trying to change this and change the status quo.
"She said that she was honored to serve and protect herself, although she has now replaced her oversized jacket hidden in the gun with a designer jacket, she was comfortable with the weapons and everything she had to do.
"You don't want to be shot, I 've never been shot.
As part of the event, she was talking to the "girl" at the police station.
"I suggest that a good way to get a promotion when a male boss goes on vacation is to provide a job.
You will be responsible and will be able to prove that you have everything you need.
"She wants more women to join the industry.
It takes some type of woman to thrive in the force.
"I told them that you have to have four key things as a female police officer.
First: communication skills
You need to get along with people from all walks of life, use words to gain the trust of the victims, and know how to interview the criminals for confession.
Second: a good sense of humor.
"Third: be honest, honest, honest and professional with yourself.
These skills can be moved and as you progress, you can look up with pride.
4. You need to like a cup of morning tea.
