Sussex Police keep up the pressure on drug dealers
Sussex Police has been keeping up the pressure on 'County Lines' drug dealers who operate from outside the county as well as locally. During the week starting on 21 January officers carried out 28 arrests, made 711 drug seizures, and seized £10,475 cash as well as 32 mobile phones.
During the same week, officers carried out safeguarding action to support 17 vulnerable people and visited 91 addresses where people were at risk of being 'cuckooed' to check on their safety.
Detective Chief Inspector Steve Rayland said: "This is the result of just one week's activity, and shows how we are continuing to disrupt dealers who try to distribute dangerous drugs across our communities. Our work will continue relentlessly, targeting those who would bring harm to local people, including often the most vulnerable.
"Police work to combat illegal drugs in Sussex continues under the 'Fortress' brand, launched to encompass all our drug-harm reduction work. It is already used by police in Hampshire and there are plans to roll this out further across the South East, which will continue to strengthen the unified voice from police and partners that says this is a hostile environment for drug supply.”
