New Scotland Yard houses the senior members of the Metropolitan Police Force, as well as the Met’s crime database, running on a nationwide IT system named the ‘Home Office Large Major Enquiry System’ or HOLMES for short.

Hopefully none of the characters will be seen to use the database onscreen in Sherlock, lest the universe implode.
