Scotland Yard

Scotland Yard refers to the police headquarters in London, responsible for all the boroughs of London (but excluding the City of London). The rear entrance at the original headquarters at 4 Whitehall Place faced a street named Great Scotland Yard, which became the public entrance. Eventually, the place and the police force became synonymous. In 1890, the police force relocated to a new building dubbed “New Scotland Yard.” Headquarters has moved a few more times and is presently located at the Curtis Green Building, though it retains the name New Scotland Yard.
