Suffolk police have a long-running campaign to crack down on drug crime in the county.

However despite county policing commander Ch Supt Tonya Antonis has warned: “We can’t merely ‘arrest our way out’ of the situation – more long long term work is continuing with our partners to develop our response further.”
She added: “We want to make Suffolk a hostile environment for those who think they can come into our county and deal drugs.”
