The series consists of Superintendent of Police correspondence inward from 1891 to 1910. The correspondence is generally filed chronologically and alphabetically by sender's name.
With the exception of certain files in 1896 and 1897, the correspondence from 1891 to 1900 is organized by date and then by letter of the alphabet. From 1901 to 1910 the correspondence is organized by alphabet ranges, and then by varying date ranges, e.g. Jan 1901-Mar 1903 for Aa-Bx but Jan 1901-Sep 1902 for Caa-Cz. Correspondence for a particular time period is therefore also not sequential. A single year or date range is distributed over several different boxes, depending on the name of the correspondent. Date ranges are not exact, i.e. files may contain earlier correspondence than indicated if it is part of an ongoing issue. The letter ranges are guides only and do not necessarily reflect the exact contents of a file, e.g. Com-Cz may contain correspondents ranging from Cotton to Cutter only.

They also include the names of enemy aliens who were already imprisoned in local jails. Other correspondence deals with issues such as bigamy, seduction, illegal sale of liquor, prostitution, burglary, sudden or mysterious deaths, gambling, arson, and escaped prisoners. During this period, the police also conducted searches for individuals reported missing by overseas family members. Such letters were usually written when an emigrant family member had fallen out of contact with his or her relatives in their home country, and are not indicative of foul play.
