So you've heard of Police Gazettes? But just what are they? These were weekly publications which were distributed among the Police Force, and included information on all sorts of happenings within the state of South Australia.
Far from being just a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians, the Police Gazettes contain details and information that cannot be found anywhere else. As well as listing those in the police force with promotions, resignations, commendations etc, you will find information on arson, murders, deserters, details of those arrested and discharged, warrants issued, escaped prisoners, missing persons, licence applications, lost and stolen items (and from whom), apprehensions and more. Many photographs are included of those who were missing, were wanted, or were being discharged. Notices from police gazettes from other states are also often included.
