THE POLICE GAZETTE

Part 1: The Police Gazette - Issues for 1866-1878, 1882-1897 & 1899-1900 from the Cambridgeshire Police Archives

The Police Gazette is an invaluable resource for all those interested in:

  • The history of crime.
  • The changing role of the police from the Georgian through to the Victorian periods.
  • The social history of possessions.
  • 'Transportation' to Australia.
  • Desertion from the armed forces.
  • Genealogy - it is full of names of missing persons, those involved in crime and those deported or imprisoned.

Despite the fact that it was widely issued (to every major police station; to magistrates, mayors and justices of the peace; to the commanding officers of every regiment; and to government officials at home and abroad) it is now incredibly scarce.  Les Waters of the Police History Society carried out an extensive survey to try to piece together a complete set.  This project is a direct result of his work.  The aim of this microfilm project is to assemble a 129 year run of the journal from 1772 through to 1900 by filming various scattered holdings.

Part 1 makes available issues for 1866-1869, 1871-1878, 1882-1897 & 1899-1900 from the holdings of the Cambridgeshire Police Archive (covering 30 years, representing 23% of the total run from 1772 to 1900).
