Not only are Police Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for all historians, as they were compiled to be distributed amongst the police force only, they contain information that can not be found anywhere else.

Now issued on searchable CD-ROM, this contains all 52 issues that were released during the year 1889. Each issue is usually 8-10 pages long, and contains information such as court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lists of arrests and discharges, escaped prisoners, and missing persons, house-breakins, murders, arson, deserting wives and families, inquests, lost and found property, missing friends, rewards and more ... Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.

The Police Gazettes are an incredibly unique source of information, simply because they were designed to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, and the information contained often cannot be found anywhere else.

Example entry taken from the 17 April 1889 issue:
Offences not Otherwise Described
Sydney - A warrant has been issued by the Central Police Bench for the arrest of William Krause, charged with obtaining from William Werner the sum of £75 by means of a false pretence, with intent to defraud.  Description of offender:- 32 years of age, 5 feet 7 inches high, stout build, dark hair and complexion, dark moustache, otherwise clean shaved, round shoulders; a butcher. Complainant, William Werner, 638, George-street.

Example entry from the 24 April 1889 issue:
Child Abandoned

Vide Police Gazette, 1889, page 129
The Attorney General has declined to file a bill against Peter Murray alias Peter Morton and Annie Murray alias Morton, committed for trial at Tamworth Circuit Court for abandoning their infant child.

Not only is this a valuable resource for those researching in New South Wales, but it makes for fascinating reading even if you don't have family there.
