The UK Intelligence Agency
Metropolitan Police [Scotland Yard]
 In 1829, when Sir Robert Peel was Home Secretary, the
first Metropolitan Police Act was passed and the
Metropolitan Police Force was established in London. The
task of organizing and designing the "New Police"
undertaken at 4 Whitehall Place, the back of which opened
on to a courtyard which had been the site of a residence
owned by the Kings of Scotland, known as "Scotland
Yard". These headquarters were removed in 1890 to
premises on the Victoria Embankment known as "New
Scotland Yard." In 1967 further removal took place to a
larger and more modern headquarters building at
Broadway, S.W.1, which is also known as "New Scotland
Yard".
The Commissioner, who heads the Metropolitan Police has
traditionally answered directly to the Home Secretary. This dates back
to the formation of the Metropolitan Police and reflects its difference
from other police forces and its national and international
responsibilities. The Metropolitan Police Service performs national
functions, such as those in relation to the protection of royalty and
countering terrorism in Great Britain. In addition to these two, the
MPS has a number of other capital city, and national responsibilities
such as the protection of certain members and ex-members of the
government and the diplomatic community and assisting with
enquiries concerning British interests at home and abroad. These
responsibilities make the Metropolitan Police Service unique among
UK police forces. The Metropolitan Police Service should not be
confused with the City of London Police, which is a separate force
responsible for policing The Square Mile in the City of London.
