Description
Headquarters of the Metropolitan Police

In June 1829, the British Parliament established Greater London's Metropolitan Police, the Metropolitan Police was formed by Robert Peel.  

Scotland Yard keeps extensive files on all known criminals in the United Kingdom. Although Scotland Yard’s responsibility is limited to metropolitan London, its assistance is often sought by police in other parts of England.

The Scotland Yard entrance became the public entrance to the police station. Scotland Yard, the site of their first headquarters, eventually became the official name of the force.

Scotland Yard was so named because it stood on the site of a medieval palace that had housed Scottish royalty when the latter were in London on visits.

From 2016 New Scotland Yard is based on Victoria Embankment, Victoria, City of Westminster
