INSTRUCTIONS TO POLICE
The Police in earlier years sure had it tough... so often, we seek the stories of convicts and criminals... this Police Gazette, from 1925, gives some idea of what the rules and regulations were for the police in that time.
This Gazette lists the guidelines for dealing with many of the offences, etc. that the police would come across, and lists the areas of jurisdiction.
By the way... did you know... The first police force in the Colony was made up of the eight of the best-behaved convicts.
