This CD contains high quality scanned images all 53 issues that were produced for the year 1892, and is truly a fascinating read for learning about the social history of the time, even if you don't have family there.
 

What is a Police Gazette?
Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, Police Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else. Produced at regular intervals (usually once a week), it was a way of making information available to all in the Police Force throughout the whole state.

What information can be found in a New South Wales Police Gazette?
The information contained in the Police Gazettes does vary a little from year to year, but overall you will find details of any changes within the police force which are all listed (promotions, demotions, resignations, dismissals, retirements, deaths etc), information is also given on housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, court records, lost horses and cattle, deserters, escaped prisoners, missing friends, and reports on those released. Notices from interstate police gazettes are sometimes included.

How can this help me?
Anyone researching their family will have a 'lost' family member or two! You may well find them listed here, being on either side of the law. Or maybe they were a Policeman who transferred to another department or division, or someone that was a victim of a crime. You can find the physical details on persons listed here, missing, wanted or released, which helps to paint a picture of them (name, aliases used, age, height, colour hair, colour eyes, distinguishing features, even colour clothing worn).

A unique feature of this years' issues are the lists of publicans' licences. They list the licencees name, address and name of the hotel.

Example entry taken from the 19 January 1876 issue:
Charles Dittmer, charged on warrant with committing wilful and corrupt perjury, in a case against Harvey Redgrave, heard before the Wentworth Bench on the 24th ultimo, has been arrested by Senior-sergeant Keelty, Wentworth Police. Committed for trial at Wentworth Quarter Sessions. Redgrave has since committed suicide.

Far from being just a unique and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians - they are useful for anyone with an interest in New South Wales in the 1870s.
