After the success in London, the unique private police will begin to operate throughout the UK

After a successful start in three wealthy districts of London, the private police will begin to act on the territory of the whole country. For the amount from £100 to £200 per month, the personnel from the service My Local Bobby will guard the townspeople and investigate crimes. Police will patrol the area and allow their clients to track their progress on the application for iPad. My Local Bobby was started by two former police officers of the Metropolitan Police: former investigator David McKelvey and Tony Nash, former head of police of Newham.

Although private police officers are not really police officers in the traditional sense of the word, they can conduct civil arrests and collect evidence for prosecution of individuals. After the successful launch of the project in Belgravia, Mayfair and Kensington, and due to the growing demand for private policing services, the company now plans to start working in other cities. Mr. McKelvey told: "You will not see that policemen stroll through the streets anymore. If you call 999, you have to wait half an hour, and the one who answers your call is not a policeman too. My Local Bobby, in fact, returns us during the time of the police of the television program Dixon of Dock Green".

A representative of the Metropolitan Police said: "The metropolitan police service does not support individuals or groups of people who pursue dangerous criminals themselves. This may jeopardize the ongoing investigation, so we advise anyone who has information about the crime to contact the police as soon as possible, the crime should be investigated and the offender punished. Disclosing the identity of a potential suspect may give him the opportunity to destroy evidence before the police comes. People or groups of people who pursue criminals, jeopardize their lives, so you should immediately call 999, when you see something suspicious".

However, he added: "If some organizations or residential areas want to finance patrols that will guarantee them security, we will cooperate with them to prevent crimes. Any reports of crimes and evidence made by a third party will be reviewed and processed.” "The private police service has already begun work in Mayfair, Chelsea, Belgravia and Kensington. For £200 per month, wealthy people can forget about criminals in West London, while a reduction of the number of police officers by 3,000, means that conservatives will increase the number of crimes in other areas of London. Terrible". It is reported that the service My Local Bobby has already been able to achieve more than 400 charges of crimes, including fraud and theft of intellectual property, in addition, private police can investigate drug-related crimes and even murders.
