Police pioneers of New South Wales

Webster, D. P. (Daniel P.)1996
Subject: Researching the pioneer Police Officers of New South Wales is a difficult task. This is due, in the main, to a significant lack of accessible relevant primary and secondary documentary information ... There does exist a strong, though at times obscure, historical thread linking the Police Service of the 1990's to a small group of First Fleet convicts. But there are information gaps in many places, mainly during the earliest decades, where the recording of police history suffered ... So who were the 'police' of early colonial New South Wales? What was their role and function? How important were they? And how do they identify with the Police Service of the 1990s? ... The information contained in these pages has been obtained from a number of varying sources, and hopefully fills in some gaps (Foreword).
