Tales of the Troopers.




When the land was vast and the living hard, mounted troopers went where no European had been before. Carrying the mail, guiding royal parties, chasing criminals through hostile territory, travelling by camel, guarding prisoners in tin sheds, and escorting gold overland, were just part of a colonial policeman’s lot.
Tales of the Troopers is not only a book about crime and punishment in South Australia's wild colonial days, but a chronology of the history of our State in the 1800's.

To Walk a Fair Beat.




This book is important as a record of the contributions made by women to the work of the South Australian Police Force from 1915 to 1987. It was, then, a very different age from that of the present in which early women police officers worked. They came into an area in which most of the men engaged must have been suspicious of their presence. However, they demonstrated that women could occupy positions of authority at a time when there was widespread suspicion, that, except in traditionally female spheres of employment authority was not appropriate for women.

Colonial Blue.



The story of Australia's first and oldest organised police force. Colonial Blue is a warts and all examination of the South Australia Police Force from 1838 to 1916. An authoritative and honest account, it makes for provocative and compelling reading. With extensive and original use of primary source material, Colonial Blue explores the makeshift and disputed beginnings of the police in South Australia – a colony where crime was not meant to exist.

Inman
by Max Slee.








In 1838 the infant British colony of South Australia suffered its first crime wave.
Twenty-one year old Henry Inman, a decorated cavalry officer, was appointed to create and command a police force, bringing law and order to the fragile settlement.
This biography on Inman – the first published – therefore narrates the genesis of the South Australia Police Force.

Inman zealously established the rule of law at the fragile frontiers of colonial settlement, pursuing murderers and bushrangers, one of whom he captured at Inman Valley, which is named after him.
Financial management – a lifelong weakness – then caused his dismissal.

Taking on overlanding livestock inn 1841, he was almost fatally speared.  He then unintentionally provoked lethal hostilities with Aboriginals at the Rufus River, resulting in his financial ruin.

To support his growing family he taught mathematics in Sydney before returning to England in 1848 to join the rural clergy.

It was said that he was a most amiable young man, who ‘with favouring circumstances’ would become a credit to his family.  But, despite many notable achievements, he was beset by misfortune and personal failings.

Now, following comprehensive research, this chronicle reveals his remarkable life and exploits.
