Police Gazettes kept police throughout Victoria informed on regulations within the Police Force, and police employment etc. For family historians interest is in the numerous references to individual policemen and criminals - and those against whom the offences occurred, which could have been anyone in community of the day. The crimes may be major, such as murder, rape and theft or lesser crimes such as desertion and various misdemeanours. Lists of pastoralists and a description of their brands appear at intervals. As with Government Gazettes they are largely an untapped resource. Now that is all changing - with the publication on affordable and searchable CD-ROM.

Just some of the information that can be found in the Police Gazette

  • housebreaking and stealing
  • highway robbery
  • felonies, murder, arson and other crimes
  • horse and cattle stealing
  • larceny and embezzlement
  • missing persons - with detailed descriptions
  • property lost and found
  • desertions - from vessels, police force, military
  • lists of those apprehended
  • escaped convicts - with descriptions (including other colonies)
  • ticket of leave holders
  • escaped lunatics
  • police notices from other colonies
  • police promotions, reductions and dismissals
  • miscellaneous information - which can include any information of police interest that does not into the regular categories of police notices

This searchable CD will be immensely useful to:

  • local historians
  • family historians
  • police historians
  • social historians

Just type in the name, place, crime or any other key word to quickly locate all occurrences throughout the 384 pages. Or just browse to learn more of the mid 19th Century world our ancestors lived in. This CD not only makes this immensely useful content affordable and readily available, but it unlocks the data with the impressive new searching it now offers.
