Police Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia. Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes therefore contain details and information that cannot be found anywhere else.


They include court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lists of arrests and discharges (which include descriptions), escaped prisoners, and sometimes missing persons. Arson, convict records, deserters, highway robbery, horse and cattle theft, inquests, licences, lost and found items, murder are also mentioned. There are plenty records that don't relate to criminals, such as missing persons, people applying for licenses, lost and found items, houses and shops broken into, horses and cattle stolen, and much more. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.


You’ll also find that they provide details on the crime, the victim and the suspect, aliases used, ages, race, native place, address as well as physical descriptions, details of sentences, and more.
