An absolute goldmine of information, Police Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia. As they were compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else.
They include information on warrants issued, changes in the police force which are all listed (promotions, demotions, resignations, dismissals, retirements, deaths etc). Information is also given on housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost and found items, deserters, escaped prisoners, missing friends, and reports on those released. Notices from interstate police gazettes are sometimes included.
SAMPLE ENTRY (from the 2 April 1927 issue):
Changes in the Police Force of Queensland
Constable Joseph Karey, Reg. No. 2768, Nambour, on the 19th March, 1927.
A vast resource of information on people and events in Queensland during 1927. Often something found in a Police Gazette is either totally unknown to the researcher, as the family kept it quiet, or it can verify a family story.
