A unique, and under-used source, the the New South Wales Police Gazettes are an
extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians
Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes
contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else. Apart from
any changes within the police force which are all listed (promotions, demotions,
dismissals, deaths etc), information is also given on housebreak-ins, robberies,
arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, deserters, escaped prisoners, missing
friends, lost and found items, reports on those released, even deaths reported
to the police (together with their place of death and cause of death given).
Notices from interstate police gazettes are sometimes included.
