Help me find an essay on the proper role of a police officer?

An article (or essay? almost a manifesto?) on the proper role of a police officer, or perhaps rather, the philosophy of what a British constable is supposed to do. From I think the late 19th century. Can you find me the link?

I think that you probably mean Sir Robert Peel's Peelian principles:

There's slightly expanded article here.
