A.O.S I think a hero is a person who does not care about fame or money that's why I choose the A.O.S. The A.O.S is a volunteer based operation and are drawn from the New Zealand police, then undergo harsh training.

In 1964 the armed offender's squad (A.O.S) was made after four police officer were killed in an armed situation. The A.O.S helps everyone with problems with armed offenders. There are now 17 squad's covering all main centres in New Zealand

I think the New Zealand A.O.S team are heroes because they put their lives in danger to help protect the public from dangerous people or situations
