The conver page of them says: "Containing 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."
They also 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 and descriptions photographs and details of deserters, escaped prisoners, and missing people as well names of those who hold various licences (such as liquor, tobacco etc.). Notices from police gazettes from other states are also often included.
