REGULAR patrols aimed at stamping out anti-social behaviour will be carried out in Potters Bar following the formation of a partnership between two police forces.
Hertfordshire Constabulary and British Transport Police (BTP) have teamed up to tackle delinquency in Darkes Lane and at the town's railway station.
The alliance will see officers from both forces carry out a series of high-visibility patrols over the coming weeks.
They will also use dogs and automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology to sniff out offenders.
