Police Gazettes are an extremely useful resource for family and local historians alike. Compiled to be distributed amongst the police force only, these Gazettes therefore contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else.


The Queensland Police Gazette describes it well saying that overall they "contain information received in cases of felony and of misdemeanour, and against receivers of stolen property, reputed thieves, and offenders escaped from custody, with the time, place, and circumstances of the offences, and description of offenders or those suspected, giving the appearance, dress, and other marks of identity, with every particular which may lead to their apprehension; and a description, as accurate as possible, of property that has been stolen, horses, &c." You will find all of this and more included in the South Australian Police Gazettes. Details of warrants issued, changes in the police service, arrests and discharges, deserters, escaped prisoners, missing people, approvals of licences to name some. Notices from police gazettes from other states are also often included.

Now searchable, these Gazettes on CD-ROM open up a world of interesting and comprehensive information about individual people and their lives in South Australia's past.
