Police History
Crimes were once reported to local constables. In 1749, as Magistrate of Westminster, the novelist Henry Fielding began the Bow Street Runners. In 1829 Robert Peel founded London’s Metropolitan Police. Countrywide forces formed during 1837-39. Poor working conditions gradually improved. Photography from the late 1800s, fingerprinting from 1901 and DNA tests from 2001 have created great advances.
