Sur­prise: road cops are real peo­ple too

Central Otago Mirror - - OUT & ABOUT -

While we drove back for a cuppa, I asked But­tar what he liked about the job.

‘‘Just be­ing out mak­ing a dif­fer­ence. I be­lieve in what I do. It saves lives. I’m pas­sion­ate about my job.’’

Then he pointed out to­wards the lake and moun­tains. ‘‘That’s my of­fice win­dow.’’


Se­nior Con­sta­ble Graeme But­tar, of Cromwell, loves his job polic­ing Cen­tral Otago’s roads.
