The HQ of the Met is at New Scotland Yard, just opposite St. James' Park tube station. This is actually the second ''New'' Scotland Yard. (The name comes from the fact that the original HQ had a public entrance opening onto Great Scotland Yard, a street which got its name for housing the diplomatic mission of the Kingdom of Scotland in [[TheHouseOfTudor Tudor times]].) The force is divided into borough commands, each having a two letter code seen on officer's shoulder numbers.
