Police Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for
local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout
Australia. Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these
Gazettes therefore contain details and information that can not be found
They 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 (which include descriptions), escaped prisoners, and missing persons.
Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.
