Police Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia. Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else.
They include lists of warrants issued, changes in the police force which are all listed (promotions, demotions, resignations, dismissals, retirements, deaths etc). Information is also given on housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, deserters, escaped prisoners, missing friends, inquests, and reports on those released. Notices from interstate police gazettes are sometimes included.
This CD contains five years of Victoria Police Gazettes from 1906 to 1910 all on the one CD, at a very special price.
