This chapter begins with a discussion of reform initiatives and parliamentary reviews of London's policing. It then discusses the structural changes in London's policing between 1829 and 1839: initially through swift implementation of the 1829 Act, and concluding with enactment of the Metropolitan Police Act 1839. The chapter then considers provincial policing until 1856, urban policing, the acceptance of the policed state, control, and accountability for professional policing.
