A vast resource of personal information and events - if you find details of a person in a Police Gazette can lead to very interesting stories, or answer some questions about family stories that have been handed down.
 

During 1917 the South Australian Police Gazette was issued weekly. They were used as a means to convey information to all South Australian Police Forces of information received relating to any crime, or missing items or person, changes in the force, as well as notifying of methods and procedures that need to be followed in certain circumstances.

A vast resource of personal information and events - if you find details of a person in a Police Gazette can lead to very interesting stories, or answer some questions about family stories that have been handed down.

This truly is an historian's goldmine of information which cannot be found elsewhere. Apart from any changes within the police force which are all listed, information is also given on housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, deserters, missing persons, warrants issued, arrests, escaped prisoners, and reports on those released. Notices from interstate police gazettes are sometimes included.
