Historic Scotland Yard
Is Power in Crime Annals
By ARCH RODGERS
United Press Staff Correspondent
LONDON -(IP) —Considering t h o
amount of publicity it receives, there
is porportlonately less known about
Scotland Yard’s "Flying Squad" than
about any other public service In Lon-
don. There are usually several Edgar
Wallace thrillers running In the the-
atres in which the central figures are
taken from the famous branch of Lon-
don's police force. The first success-
ful British talkie, "Blackmail,” gave
the Scotland Yard ” ’tecs,” as they are
called over here, a big boost. "Flying
Squad Chase Thrill” Is a favorite item
on the newpaper placards. Chase is
a noun In this instance. The best au-
thors write about the Flyiug Squad,
the best people talk about It, the best
burglars dodge it, but nobody knows
much about it.
The Flying Squad at present con-
sists of a fleet of 220 automobiles, six
of which are equipped with wireless,
which patrol districts of the Metro-
politan police area, or stund by at
tho Yard ready to start chasing crim-
inals when the report of a crime is
flashed to headquarters. When the
theft of an auto-
mobile, a smash
and grab raid, a
accident, a mur
der, or anything
in which the po
lice are interest
ed is reported to
details are at
o n ce broadcast
and picked up by
the wireless pa-
trols. Tlie mes-
sage is also tele-
phoned to all po-
lice stations, and the Flying Squad
operators in the district get into ac-
tion. The Squad cars can race at
75 miles an hour. Motor raiders need
a good start to get away, for the
Byng Boys can increase the speed of
their Flying Marlas from 10 to 60
miles an hour within 15 seconds.
Scotland Yard first used wireless In
1922, hut the original outfits looked
more like a lumbering squad than a
flying squad. Tho equipment was car-
ried in a truck, and it was necessary
to pull up in front of the nearest pub-
lic house, hoist the aerial, and cast
forth the ground nets before tho wire-
less was good for anything except bal-
last. The next development was tho
flying truck, fitted with transmitting
and receiving sets and internal aeri-
nls. The arrangement was much more
satisfactory and established constant
connection with headquarters, but the
size of the trucks rnnde them easily
spotted by criminals. The four
trucks are still in service, and have
