You can expect the New South Wales Police Gazettes to include the following information that will usually list names and some times personal details, descriptions with photograph, addresses and/or occupations may be an added bonus for the researcher:

  • apprehensions
  • complainants
  • deaths in public places
  • escapees and absconders from custody
  • lost or stolen property and stock—names of victims; sketches of jewellery and watches
  • deserting wives, families, etc
  • deserting from military service
  • deserting from merchant vessels
  • inquests
  • missing friends
  • persons suspected or wanted for a crime and warrants issued
  • police promotion examination results and appointments
  • prisoners discharged from gaols
  • prisoners released on tickets of leave (under licence)
  • prohibited immigrants
  • publicans’ licences

A vast resource of historical information for any local, social or family historian, the Police Gazettes contain information that cannot be found elsewhere. Totalling over 700 pages of information on this CD, there are thousands of names of people on both sides of the law, together with events that happened throughout 1915, which certainly makes for great reading.
