Police Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for
local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout
Australia. Compiled to be distributed amongst the police force only, these
Gazettes therefore contain details and information that can not be found
A goldmine of information for any historian, the Police Gazettes contain a
wide range of information such as court lists, lists of warrants issued,
appointments and discharges within in the police service, lists of
arrests and discharges (which include physical descriptions of the offender),
escaped prisoners (also with descriptions), details of those deserting their
wives and families, missing friends, deserters from H.M. Service, lists of
horses and cattle stolen. You will also find details on murders, robberies,
arson, sacrilege and more. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are
also often included.
