|Convicts released from prison on licence wanted by the police
The Police Gazette was published by Authority by the London Metropolitan Police, and circulated, as confidential, to the police forces throughout Britain and Ireland. The contents were based on the information routinely submitted to the Criminal Record Office. One of the regular features was a section entitled 'Convicts on Licence, Persons under Police Supervision and others whose apprehensions are sought for failing to comply with the requirements of the Prevention of Crimes Act'. The details given are: the convict's full name (in bold), with any aliases; C. R. O. number, year of birth, height, complexion, hair colour, eye colour, distinguishing marks such as scars; occupation; birthplace. There then follows a resume of the previous conviction and details of release; reason for revocation of the licence (usually failure to report to the police); name of the officer proving service of the notice; name of the officer proving identity; previous convictions; names of police forces that had had contact with the indivudual in the past. Often there is a police portrait. Variations of surname spelling and aliases are noted in the descriptions, and these variants and aliases have also been indexed. This index covers ordinary convicts; there is a separate index for those released on licence from borstal institutions.
