Sherriff and Gaols Department, State of Tasmania


The Sheriff and Gaols Department, originally established in 1824 and managed by the colonial government, enforced Supreme Court judgements and administered the jury system. In this role, it oversaw local gaols, many of which housed children. In 1924, it became the Supreme Court and Sheriff’s Office.
