Issued once a week, this CD-ROM is a compilation of all of the issues of the South Australia Police Gazette that were issued in 1893. Each issue is usually four 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 (which include descriptions), escaped prisoners, and missing persons, house-breakins, deserting wives and families, inquests, missing friends 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.

SAMPLE ENTRIES (from the 12 July 1893 issue):

At Angus Plains, the 10th instant, on the body of Isaac Davidson, who was found on his father's farm, the 7th instant, with a gunshot wound in his left breast, from which he died on the 9th instant. Verdict- "That the deceased's death was caused by a gunshot wound inflicted by himself whilst in a state of unsound mind. No blame attachable to any person."
