Ideal not only the family historian, but also those researching local history and social history, the Police Gazettes contain a host of useful information that is not only an interesting read, but also unique in its content.

With details on any changes within the Police Force itself (promotions, demotions, commendations, resignations etc), there is also information on housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, deserters from families as well as deserters from service, missing persons, warrants issued, arrests, escaped prisoners, inquest verdicts, and reports on those released. Notices from interstate police gazettes are sometimes included. You will also find some 'photograph supplements' which have been issued from time to times, which include the photographs, together with the names, aliases, criminal history and time served.
