Description
 
What is a Police Gazette?
Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, Police Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else. Produced at regular intervals (usually once a week), it was a way of making information available to all in the Police Force throughout the whole state.

What information can be found in a Queensland Police Gazette?
The information contained in the Police Gazettes does vary a little from year to year, but overall you will find details of any changes within the police force which are all listed (promotions, demotions, discharges, resignations, deaths), information is also given on housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, deserted seamen, deserters from families, warrants issued, prisoners discharged, missing friends, lost and found items and so much more.

How can this help me?
Anyone researching their family will have a 'lost' family member or two! You may well find them listed here, being on either side of the law. Or maybe they were a policeman who transferred to another department or division, or someone that was a victim of a crime. You can find the physical details on persons listed here, missing, wanted or released, which helps to paint a picture of them (name, aliases used, age, height, colour hair, colour eyes, distinguishing features, even colour clothing worn). Occasionally there is even a photograph.

Far from being just a unique and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians - they are useful for anyone with an interest in Queenslanders in this era.

High quality scanned images of the whole years worth of issues. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
