Police Gazettes are an extremely useful resource for family, local and social historians. Compiled to be distributed amongst the police force only, these Gazettes therefore contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else.

The Police Gazettes state that they 'containing information received in cases of felony and of misdemeanour, and against receivers of stolen property, reputed thieves, and offenders escaped from custody, with the time, place, and circumstances of the offences, and description of offenders or those suspected, giving the appearance, dress, and other marks of identity, with every particular which may lead to their apprehension; and a description, as accurate as possible, of property that has been stolen, horses, &c.'

The content of the issues varies a little over time, and some issues include court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the police service, lists of Justices of the Peace, lists of those applying for various licenses such as liquor, wine sellers, tobacco sellers, auctioneers, and even billiard and poisons licences.

Regular features of the Police Gazettes are lists of those arrested as well as those discharged (which includes physical descriptions  of the offenders - height, build, look, clothing, and any obvious features etc.). Details of deserters (both from H.M. Service, and also those deserting their wives and families), escaped prisoners, and missing people as well are noted, as are a number of notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included if they had reason to believe that an offender of theirs was heading to Queensland.

Now searchable, these fascinating Gazettes on CD-ROM open up a world of interesting and comprehensive information about individual people and their lives in Queensland's past.

Also available as five separate CD-ROMs, this Compendium is a collection of the contents of all five put onto a single CD, and covers all issues between 1886 and 1890.

This CD contains high quality scanned images of each issue of the Police Gazettes for the years 1885 through to 1890, and each has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
