Chief Inspector Nick Skipworth said: “Drugs can affect people’s health but also cause a financial strain, sometimes leading users to commit other crimes. Dealers and organised criminals also resort to violence to maintain their positions and recover debts. This can profoundly affect the lives of those caught up and sometimes unconnected members of the public.
