Description
 
If you had family living in South Australia in the 1920s, have you thought of looking at the Police Gazettes for information? These are an historian's goldmine of information. Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else.

Far from just listing those who were in the Police Force, or those that were on the 'wrong side' of the law - you will also find entries of missing persons, or they might be a witness to crime, or they may have had something stolen from them, or they may even have found an item, and reported it to the Police.

Issued once a week, you will find information on housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, stolen cars and motorbikes, deserters from families and also deserters from service, inquest verdicts, escaped prisoners and reports on those released ... as well as some information from interstate police gazettes ... and so much more. This CD-ROM contains all issues that were released during 1929.

Example entry taken from the 27 March 1929 issue:
