THE NEW COMMISSIONER OF POLICE

Mr. James Monro, C.B., the new Commissioner of Metropolitan Police, speaking last night at a banquet given by the City Police Committee at the Haberdashers' Hall, said, whether they belonged to the City or the metropolis, they were all policemen, and they were all animated by the same desire and same intention, viz., to do their duty in every shape and way to the public. When he said that, he was certain that it included everything that could be said in the way of performing their duties to the citizens, their duties to the Government, and their duties to the police force. It was only so long as they were in touch with the public that they could perform those duties. Of that there could no doubt whatever, and he had the proud satisfaction to know, even from his short connexion with the police, that they were in touch with the public. Long might they continue to be so. So long as they continued he was perfectly certain they would continue to deserve the kind things that had been said of them by Sir Robert Peel (a previous speaker) and the public at large. He and Sir James Fraser, the Commissioner of the City Police, worked together with the greatest harmony, and were animated by the simple desire to do their duty and protect the lives and property and best interests of the public.
