“The production and distribution of drugs has a detrimental impact on communities and ruins lives. It can also often be linked to more serious organised crime and violence.

“The force remains committed to doing everything it can to bring those involved in drug-related crime to justice as well as preventing harmful drugs from hitting the streets.

“Information from the public is vital in helping us crack down on drug crime and I’d urge anyone with any information about suspected drug-related activity in their community to get in touch with us. ”

If people spot something out of the ordinary in their area or have any concerns they are asked to report them to Nottinghamshire Police on 101. Alternatively, they can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
