The law met the lawmaker in Harpenden when Bim Afolami went on patrol with the town’s police force.
Mr Afolami met with Ch Insp Stuart Cheek before going out with PC Art Wilkes and PCSO Josh Walton.
PC Wilkes said: “We discussed policing in the town and the issues of day-to-day policing we face. We spoke about the security of bikes at the train station, shoplifting, stop and search powers and technology that has enabled us to be more mobile.
“We also spoke about how closely we work with other forces to share information about suspects and vehicles.”
They went to Lower High Street, Sun Lane, Leyton Road, Rothamsted Park and Station Road and the officers were handed a wallet found by a member of the public. They managed to reunite it with the owner later on in their shift.
