Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, you will find details of any changes within the police force such as promotions, demotions, resignations, dismissals, deaths etc. Information is also given on rewards, housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, deserters, escaped prisoners, missing friends, lost or stolen items, reports on those apprehended and released, and so much more. Notices from interstate police gazettes are sometimes included.
