Police Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians. Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else.

Issued weekly, this CD-ROM is a compilation of all issues of the South Australia Police Gazette that were issued throughout the year. Each issue is approximately 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.
