Description
 
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.

Issued once a week, this CD-ROM is a compilation of all of the issues of the South Australia Police Gazette that were issued 1895. Each issue is usually four pages long, and contains information such as court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lists of arrests and discharges (which include descriptions), escaped prisoners, and missing persons. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.
