Description
 
Are you aware that Police Gazettes are a unique, useful, fascinating resource, and they contain a goldmine of information for local, family and social historians? They were compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, and as such, contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else.

While they do include listings of those in the Police Force who have been appointed, discharged, resigned or died, they contain so much more. Such as curt lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lists of arrests and discharges (which include descriptions), escaped prisoners, as well as missing persons together with descriptions. Also you will find information on item/s stolen and from who. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.

Usually issued weekly, here collected together on the one CD is 51 of the 52 issues released during 1898.

Example entry taken from 15 June 1898 issue:
Explosion of a Bomb in Fitzroy
See Government Gazette, 10th June, 1898, p.2031
Two Hundred Pounds Reward and Free Pardon to Accomplice
Whereas on the evening of the 28th May, at about a quarter-past Nine o'clock, a bomb, containing gunpowder and probably dynamite, was exploded on the verandah of Mr. Daniel Maloney's house at No. 144 Nicholson-street, Fitzroy, which caused damage to property and was dangerous to life: Notice is hearby given that a Reward of Two hundred pounds will be paid by the Government for information which will lead to the arrest and conviction of the offender of offenders; and also that His Excellency the Administrator of the Government will extend Her Majesty's Free Pardon to any person concerned in the offence who gives the desired information, provided the informant was not himself the perpetrator of it.
A.J. Peacock,
