In Britain today all policemen are commonly referred to as ‘Bobbies’! Originally though, they were known as ‘Peelers’ as they were the creation of one Sir Robert Peel.
The Peelers were the Metropolitan Police Force, which Sir Robert founded in 1829 when he was Home Secretary in Lord Liverpool’s Tory Cabinet.
