Livery Society AGM - Guest speaker Commissioner Ian Dyson – head of the City of London Police
Mr Dyson detailed why the City of London Police is independent of the Met; basically, when Robert Peel tried to create the Police in 1828, the Bill wasn’t passed, as the City didn’t want to be part of it – as it had its own Beadles, Night watchmen etc…. – so, the Met was established a year later, and, eventually 10 Years after that, in 1839, the City of London Police was established.
