Sir Robert Peel
Sir Robert Peel (5 February 1788 2 July 1850) was born in Bury, Lancashire. He was twice the Prime Minister and also the Home Secretary. When Home Secretary, he helped create the modern concept of the police force, leading to officers being known as "bobbies" (in England) and "Peelers" (in Ireland) to this day.
