Police Gazettes are a unique, useful, fascinating resource, and they contain a goldmine of information for local, family and social historians. Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes therefore contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else.

While they do include listings of those in the Police Force who have been appointed, discharged, resigned or died, they contain so much more. Such as curt lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lists of arrests and discharges (which include descriptions), escaped prisoners, as well as missing persons together with descriptions. Also you will find information on item/s stolen and from who. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.

Usually issued weekly, here collected together on the one CD is the whole of the 1874 years worth of issues.

Some example entries taken from the 13 January 1874 issue are:
