If you want to create something historical-fictional, then set it in Betham's Panopticon (planned but not made in England): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panopticon

It's a creepy idea but made with Utilitarian intentions.  Would fit with Victorian theme nicely.  Bentham's work helped inspire Robert Peel's first police force (Robert=Bob=Bobbies). And has an Orwellian vibe, ala the sociologist Michel Foucault https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panopticism:
