During 1900 the Queensland Police Gazette was issued weekly, and they were stated that they "contained information received in cases of felony and of misdemeanour, and against receivers of stolen property, reputed thieves, and offenders escaped from custody, with the time, place, and circumstances of the offences, and description of offenders or those suspected, giving the appearance, dress, and other marks of identity, with every particular which may lead to their apprehension; and a description, as accurate as possible, of property that has been stolen, horses, &c."

This truly is an historian's goldmine of information which cannot be found elsewhere. Apart from any changes within the police force which are all listed, information is also given on housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, deserters, missing persons, warrants issued, arrests, escaped prisoners, and reports on those released. Notices from interstate police gazettes are sometimes included.

Example entry taken from the 14 July 1900 issue:
