The New Zealand Police Gazettes 1878-1945
The Police Gazettes provided information and instructions to members of the police force. In this collection of police gazettes, which spans the years 1878-1945, you will find the names of police officers, victims of crime, missing persons, and wanted or released criminals.

This collection, now available on Ancestry, contains Police Gazettes from the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs. You can browse this collection to find out what kind of trouble your ancestors may have been getting into! These records can tell you the crime they committed and how long they were sentenced to prison. You might even find their mugshots!

The records within this collection may include the following information
• Name of convict
• Alias name
• Age at conviction
• Crime committed
• Sentence
• Birth year
• Physical characteristics
• Date of trial
