Devon police are committed to tackling drink and drugs offences to ensure Exeter is a safer city.
Operation Braveheart ran over the weekend and focussed on combating drug supply, plus use and associated violence as a result of the consumption of illegal substances.
In total 25 pubs and clubs were checked.
Officers visited public houses on the outskirts of Exeter early on, then enter licensed premises within the city and scan nightclub queues for potential drug users.
Any suspects thought to be in possession were searched and any drugs found will be seized and the offenders then dealt with by appropriate means.
Representatives from the local authority and DSFRS are also to attend to make sure that fire escapes remain unblocked and unlocked.
Friday night was considered a huge success and for the first time in the city for a long time NO arrests were made for violent crime.
A number of people were arrested for being drunk and disorderly and vehicles stopped for various traffic offences.
Saturday produced the main result of the weekend.
Police visited six pubs on the outskirts of the city centre area - Normally places people go for a drink before heading into town.
Traces of cocaine were found in ALL six pubs - in both male and female toilets and even in baby changing facilities. Police asked landlords and licencess to be vigilant with people using the toilets and keep an eye on any suspicious activity.
