Police Gazettes contain the names, physical descriptions and events associated with thousands of people in every year's worth of issue. So if  you are researching South Australian history, be it for family history, social history, or any anther reason - these are a vast resource of historical events that happened, that should not be overlooked.

As the Police Gazettes were produced for 'the  police force only' you will find information included in them, that you will not find anywhere else. You will find details of changes within the police force such as promotions, demotions, resignations, dismissals, deaths etc. Information is also given on rewards, housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, deserters, escaped prisoners, missing friends, lost, found and stolen items, reports on those apprehended and released, and so much more. Notices from interstate police gazettes are often included.
