As Queen Victoria's reign commenced the old watchmen were still patrolling the streets and Bow Street Runners were still investigating crime in London; the counties and boroughs were being policed by their own unpaid parish constables. This book details the demise of the old policing systems and the development of Sir Robert Peel's 'New Police', or 'Peelers', their uniform, weapons, pay, working conditions and responsibilities. About the author Simon Dell is a long-serving police officer in the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary and is a member of the Police History Society.
