Police gazettes provided information and instructions to members of the police force. You can expect the Victoria Police Gazette to include the following information that will usually list names and sometimes private details, descriptions, addresses and/or occupations: apprehensions, complainants, illegal immigrants, escapees and absconders from custody, lost or stolen property, deserting wives, families, etc, deserting from military service, deserting from merchant vessels, missing friends, persons suspected or wanted for a crime and warrants issued, police promotion examination results and appointments, prisoners tried, prisoners discharged from gaols
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.
