Description

bobby, slang term for a member of London’s Metropolitan Police derived from the name of Sir Robert Peel, who established the force in 1829. Police officers in London are also known as “peelers” for the same reason.

After becoming home secretary in the British government, between 1825 and 1830 Peel undertook a comprehensive consolidation and reform of criminal laws. At the time, policing in London and elsewhere in Britain was largely carried out by constables, who reported to local magistrates. Soldiers were deployed only in cases of civil or political unrest. Peel proposed that a professional police force be established by the government. The suggestion was not initially popular, and many critics thought that such a force would target political opponents of the government and would threaten civil liberties. Nonetheless, the Metropolitan Police Act was passed in 1829, establishing a force to patrol all of metropolitan London except the central City of London (the financial district).
