Not only are Police Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for all historians, as they were compiled to be distributed amongst the police force only, they contain information that can not be found anywhere else.

Now issued on searchable CD-ROM, this contains all 52 issues that were released during the year 1889. Each issue is usually 8-10 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, escaped prisoners, and missing persons, house-breakins, murders, arson, deserting wives and families, inquests, lost and found property, missing friends, rewards and more ... Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.

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.
