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.

Police gazettes provided information and instructions to members of the police force. You can expect the Tasmanian Police Gazettes  (in the earliest
years called Reports of Crime) to include the following information that will usually list names and sometimes personal details, addresses and/or occupations as an added bonus for the researcher:

  • apprehensions
  • convict returns
  • disciplining of police
  • escapees and absconders from custody
  • housebreakers and burglars
  • licensed carriers, hawkers, oyster fishers, and tanners
  • deserting wives, families, etc
  • deserting from military service
  • deserting from merchant vessels
  • inquests
  • missing friends
  • murderers and their victims
  • police resignations
  • prisoners discharged from gaols
  • prisoners released on tickets of leave
  • property and stock recovered
  • rewards—names of persons offering a reward
  • victims of arson
  • victims of horse and cattle stealing or straying
  • victims of lost or stolen property
  • victims of sheep stealing or straying
