Series notes:
These volumes of duplicate photographs, descriptions and records of prisoners were made at H.M. Gaol, Hobart and forwarded to the Inspecting Superintendent of Police. It is not clear whether multiple copies were then sent to the various police stations or they were circulated. Four of the volumes came from the Deloraine Police Station. (A set was also sent to each Australian State Police Force See AB528).~

These records are part of the holdings of the Tasmanian Archives
