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. Now that they are being released as digitised copies, they are available for all to use.
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 not only find the physical details on many people listed here (name, aliases used, age, height, colour hair, colour eyes, distiguishing features, even type and colour of clothing worn), but in the latter 1920s you'll even find mugshot photographs for many.
This USB contains all issues released during the period 1921-1930, and includes 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 in other states also often included.
Consisting of high quality scanned images of the whole of each year Victorian Police Gazette from 1921-1930, each has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
