The police officer leading a crackdown on drug-related violence in Southampton is calling communities to help them rebuild local neighbourhoods.
Operation Fortress is Hampshire Constabulary’s two-year campaign to tackle violent crime associated with drug dealing in the city.
It’s headed up by a dedicated team but involves all local police officers and staff.
This week, the team carried out another five warrants at addresses across the city, made thirteen arrests and seized almost 300 bags of class A drugs.
It brings the total number of people arrested to 46 since the campaign launched at the end of May.
