Police gazettes provided information and instructions to members of the police force. You can expect the 'South Australian Police Gazettes' to include the following information that will usually list names and sometimes private details, descriptions with photograph, addresses and/or occupations:

  • apprehensions
  • complainants
  • illegal immigrants
  • escapees and absconders from custody
  • exemptions from the 1941 Aboriginal Act
  • lost or stolen property
  • deserting wives, families, etc
  • deserting from military service
  • deserting from merchant vessels
  • gold buyer, hawker, marine store licences
  • inquests
  • missing friends
  • persons suspected or wanted for a crime and warrants issued
  • police promotion examination results and appointments
  • prisoners tried at supreme and circuit courts
  • prisoners discharged from gaols

Of special interest in this edition are the notices relating to National Security measures during wartime.

Gazettes are published by governments and their agencies as a means of communication to officials and the general public. As such they are useful, not only to monitor the actions of the government, but also as far as family historians are concerned, they are valuable primary source documents.
