Rebound in card covers. together with separately printed INDEX. 29pp. The advisability of introducing a unified police force into the metropolis in place of five district forces then engaged in law enforcement in the capital was one of the major areas investigated by the select committee. The committee whose membership included Sir Robert Peel, also heard evidence from Aldermen and police magistrates on their functions as law enforcement officers and witnesses told of the success of the Bow Street Runners in combating crime in the London area. Of special interest is the evidence given by Edward Gibbon Wakefield in which he put forward the views that the primary duty of a police force was to prevent crime and that separate prisons should be provided for juvenile delinquents. Wakefield strongly urged that juvenile delinquents should be reformed and educated while in prison rather than punished. A clean copy. N° de ref. de la librería 119053
