If you had family living in Queensland in the 1930s, have you thought of looking at the Police Gazettes for information? These are a historian's goldmine of information.
 

If you had family living in Queensland in the 1830s, have you thought of looking at the Police Gazettes for information? These are a historian's goldmine of information. Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else. Far from just listing those who were in the Police Force, or those that were on the 'wrong side' of the law - you will also find entries of missing persons, or they might be a witness to crime, or they may have had something stolen from them, or they may even have found an item, and reported it to the Police.

Police gazettes provided information and instructions to members of the police force. You can expect the police gazettes to include the following information that will usually list names and sometimes personal details, descriptions with photograph, addresses and/or occupations may be an added bonus for the researcher:

  • apprehensions
  • complainants
  • convictions without custodial sentence
  • escapees and absconders from custody
  • lost or stolen property and stock—names of victims
  • deserting wives, families, etc
  • deserting from military service and merchant vessels
  • missing friends
  • persons suspected or wanted for a crime and warrants issued
  • police resignations, dismissals and discharges
  • police killed in action or dying in the service
  • police promotion examination results and appointments
  • prisoners tried at supreme and circuit courts
  • prisoners discharged from gaols and prisoners released under licence
  • prohibited immigrants
  • superannuants

Gazettes are published by governments and their agencies as a means of communication to officials and the general public. As such they are useful, not only to monitor the actions of the government, but also as far as family historians are concerned, they are valuable primary source documents.
