“In the run up to Christmas, we want to send a clear message that there is no space for illegal drug activity in our communities.



“Over the coming weeks, we will be running operations focused on removing dangerous and illegal drugs from our streets and targeting drug dealers.

“Information from the public is vital in helping us target operations and identify those responsible for drugs activity on our streets.



“You know your own area and you know what happens within it.

“If you know of anyone who is dealing drugs in your local area then please contact us by phoning 101.

She added, “You can also provide information to the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
