Police gazettes are an absolute goldmine of information, and provide information and instructions to members of the police force.

You can expect the police gazettes to include the following information that will usually list names and some times personal details, descriptions with photograph, addresses and/or occupations may be an added bonus for the researcher:
 - •apprehensions
 - complainants
 - convictions without custodial sentence
 - escapees and absconders from custody
 - lost or stolen property and stock—names of victims
 - deserting wives, families, etc
 - deserting from military service
 - deserting from merchant vessels
 - missing friends
 - persons suspected or wanted for a crime and warrants issued
 - police resignations, dismissals and discharges
 - police killed in action or dying in the service
 - police promotion examination results and appointments
 - prisoners tried at supreme and circuit courts
 - prisoners discharged from gaols
 - prisoners released under licence
 - prohibited immigrants
 - superannuants

Gazettes are published by governments and their agencies as a means of communication to officials and the general public. As such they are useful, not only to monitor the actions of the government, but also as far as family historians are concerned, they are valuable primary source documents.
