 Jamaica Gleaner - Safe with 'Scotland Yard' - Sunday | December 5, 2004
It was the 1993 murder of Stephen Lawrence, a teenager of Jamaican parentage, that brought to the fore, concern regarding the attitudes of the Metropolitan Police Service (widely known as New Scotland Yard police, from the name of their headquarters).
Scotland Yard was severely criticised for its slow and insensitive response to the murder.
The success of Operation Trident, he pointed out, was due, in large measure, to the trust established between New Scotland Yard personnel and the targeted communities which, he argued, belied the earlier charges of hostility between the two sides.

As explained in the Encyclopaedia Britannica, Scotland Yard was so named because it stood on the site of a medieval palace that had housed Scottish royalty when they visited London.
By the late 19th century, the London police headquarters at Scotland Yard had grown increasingly overcrowded, so in 1890 a new headquarters building was completed on the Thames Embankment and named New Scotland Yard.
In 1967, the headquarters was moved to a new building at 10 Broadway, also called New Scotland Yard.

With unique access, Five Live spent a day inside New Scotland Yard, talking to senior officers about organised crime, people trafficking, the threat of terrorism and the host of other issues facing the police in modern Britain.
The Scotland Yard detective leading the operation against organised immigration related crime in the capital -  code-named Operation Maxim - has told Radio Five Live the trade in counterfeit-passports is operating on an uncontrollable scale, and people trafficking has created a 21st century slave-trade.
However, the scale of this new crime phenomenon - and frank concerns of officers in the field - will fuel the sensitive debate about the security of Britain's borders, and could also magnify worries about the far right's ability to tap into public fears.

 Metropolitan Police Authority receives report into New Scotland Yard continuity issues
The UK Metropolitan Police Authority has received a report into the circumstances surrounding the major power failure that affected New Scotland Yard and the Victoria area of London on 4th June, after expressing its concern over the Metropolitan Police's resilience to major infrastructure problems.
The Authority had been extremely disturbed that the efficiency of the service provided to Londoners was jeopardised when the Yard's backup electrical system failed, although the emergency 999 service and the police radio system were effectively maintained by being switched to local station systems.
Toby Harris, MPA chair, said: "It is essential that a backup should take over when the mains system fails and we wanted to be reassured that it would operate effectively if the need arose in the future.

Try as hard as it could, Scotland Yard was unable to prove the identity of that most nefarious criminal, Jack the Ripper, whose grisly deeds terrorized London from 1888 to 1891.
Recently, New Scotland Yard chose a collaborative intranet-based solution to improve access to and management of case files.
According to Alison Rix, project manager with the service's Records Management Branch, the first phase of the project will be to develop an in-depth index of all the case papers held on file, currently only referenced and searchable by such basic information as the names of the people involved and the type of crime.

These headquarters were removed in 1890 to premises on the Victoria Embankment known as "New Scotland Yard." In 1967 further removal took place to a larger and more modern headquarters building at Broadway, S.W.1, which is also known as "New Scotland Yard".
