The Norfolk Constabulary had a new recruit this week after an MP joined them in fighting crime on our roads.
South West Norfolk MP Elizabeth Truss joined the Norfolk police's Moonshot team, which targets offenders who use the road network to carry out crime across the county.
Accompanying the officers in their patrol car, Ms Truss saw the information from the control room being utilised by officers on the ground.
Ms Truss said: 'It was great to see first-hand the work done by police officers in tackling crime and disrupting the work of criminals in the area.
'The training and attitude of the officers is fantastic and I was incredibly impressed by their professionalism.
