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.

Issued once a week, this is a compilation of all of the issues of the South Australia Police Gazette that were issued during 1914. Each issue is usually eight pages long, and contains information such as court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lost and found items, missing friends, housebreak-ins, arson, murders,  lists of arrests and discharges (which include descriptions), and escaped prisoners. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.
