Description
 
Starting with the first issue of the year on 2 January 1918, the New South Wales Police Gazette was generally issued once a week. This CD-ROM is a compilation of all 52 issues of the that were released during that year.

Each issue is between 10-14 pages in length, and contains information such as court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service (promotions, demotions, discharges, those retiring), lists of apprehensions and discharges (which often include physical descriptions), escaped prisoners, and missing persons, house-breakins, deserting wives and families, deserters from military service, inquests, lost and found property, prohibited immigrants,  licences (explosives, booth and publicans licenses), missing friends and more ... Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.

The Police Gazettes are an incredibly unique source of information, simply because they were designed to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, and the information contained often cannot be found anywhere else.
