Each issue is between 8-12 pages in length, and contains information such as warrants issued, arrests and discharges, escaped prisoners, appointments and changes in the Police Service, licence applications, missing persons, inquest verdicts, deserters from families and deserters from the service are also included. Stolen cars and motorbikes feature heavily throughout this era. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often listed.
