An amazing source of genealogical and historical information, the Police Gazettes have been a relatively untouched resource, partly because of accessibility and partly because they weren't generally known as a key source. 

Anyone researching their family will have a 'lost' family member or two! You may well find them listed here, on either side of the law. Maybe they were a policeman, or someone who was a victim of crime. You can find the physical details on many people listed here, including those missing, wanted or released, which helps to paint a picture of them (name, aliases used, age, height, colour hair, colour eyes, distinguishing features, even type and colour of  clothing worn).

This contains all issues released during 1924, and contains information on housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, inquest verdicts, escaped prisoners and reports on those released. Also included are lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lists of arrests, escaped prisoners, and missing persons, men deserting their wives and children, as well as deserters from service and more ... Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.
