£2m Drugs Removed From Essex Streets
Drugs with an estimated street value of more than £2 million have been taken off the streets of Essex since the launch of Operation Raptor.
Over the last two and a half years, Operation Raptor teams have been created around the county to disrupt and dismantle gangs who travel to Essex to deal drugs and cause violence.
Since May 2014, teams in the North, South and West Local Policing Areas have made a total of more than 1300 arrests and seized in excess of £172,000 in cash.
Supt Paul Wells, who is leading on Operation Raptor, said: "I hope these figures help reassure residents that we are working to bring to justice gang members who think they can travel to Essex to commit their crimes.
"Drug dealing and violence between rival gangs understandably causes high levels of unrest in our communities and we will continue to use a variety of tactics to bring to justice those who carry them.
