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 anywhere else.

They include court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lists of Justices of the Peace, lists of arrests and discharges (which include descriptions), escaped prisoners, and missing persons, as well as lists for liquor, wine sellers, tobacco sellers, auctioneers, billiard and poisons licences. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.

Example entries taken from the 13 July 1892 issue:

Manslaughter
Barraba.-Elizabeth Legg, charged with the manslaughter of her husband, James Henry Legg, has been arrested by Senior-constable Johnson, Barraba Police. Committed by the Coroner for trial at Tamworth Quarter Sessions. Bail refused.

Miscellaneous Information
Mount Victoria.-On the night of the 25th ultimo, the premises occupied as a skating rink and store, situate at Mount Victoria, the property of Lewis Howell, were, with their contents destroyed by fire. And at an inquest held on the 5th instant, before J. King Lethbridge, District Coroner, the following verdict was returned:- "That the premises, situated at Mount Victoria, in the District of Hartley, on the night of the 25th June, 1892, were totally destroyed by fire; but how the fire originated the evidence adduced does not enable us to say." The property destroyed was insured for £600.
