Help disrupt drug related crime to make your community safer

Drug trafficking is a lucrative business for organised crime groups, many of whom are involved in other forms of serious crime such as modern slavery and money laundering. Crime associated with drug trafficking is often violent, with direct links to the criminal use of firearms and gang feud knife attacks.

Traffickers frequently exploit young and vulnerable people to carry out work such as working in dangerous cannabis factories and transporting drugs across the UK for supply in rural areas.

Information from the public is crucial to identify those involved in this. It also helps police to identify and safeguard victims of such crimes.

Profits from drug trafficking are often used to fund criminal operations including buying illegal firearms and funding terrorism.

If you have any information on drug crime, please report it to the police, or anonymously to Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.
