Quarterly Review, Vol.129, no.257 – 1870:

The total length of the streets and roads regularly patrolled by the metropolitan police is not less than 6708 miles, or equal to the distance, in a direct line from London across the Atlantic and the continent of North America, to San Francisco! This length is divided into 921 day-beats and 3126 night-beats – the average length of the day-beats all over the metropolitan district being about seven and a half miles, and of the night-beats a little over two miles – though they are, of course, much shorter where the population is the most dense.
