I found this 1890 article, The London Police by Commissioner Monro in the JSTOR archives and thought you might like to read his thoughts on the New Scotland Yard, MET and crime in London. The pdf copy is 1.5 mgs so I can't attach it to this thread but you can find it at this web address. Since it is stored in the JSTOR archive you don't need an account/password to read or download it to your computer.
