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 anywhere else.

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, as well as lists for liquor, wine sellers, tobacco sellers, auctioneers, billiard and poisons licences. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.

SAMPLE ENTRIES (from the 13 July 1892 issue):

Barraba.-Elizabeth Legg, charged with the manslaughter of her husband, James Henry Legg, has been arrested by Senior-constable Johnson, Barraba Police. Committed by the Coroner for trial at Tamworth Quarter Sessions. Bail refused.
