hi...

The Bow Street runners was basically a more developed version of 'thief catchers' which were the previous form of detectives. However, the Runners were funded by the Court house on Bow street.

i'm afraid I don't know exactly why it was created, just how, but I know that it was started roundabout the beginning of the industrial revolution, so the country was beginning to act on law etc at that time.

hope this helps x
