Police have arrested nearly 200 people and seized hundreds of thousands of pounds of suspected drugs in an operation spanning the whole of the South West.
Police say the crackdown - dubbed Operation Scorpion - aims to create a "hostile" environment for those profiting from the drugs trade.
In total 194 people have been arrested for drug-related offices.
Police also seized £404k of suspected drugs, at least £131k in cash seized and weapons including machetes and tasers.
During the operation - which ran from March 7-13 - officers disrupted 400 drug lines, using tactics like covert surveillance, increased patrols in areas of "high demand" and number plate recognition technology.
They also carried out warrants at addresses used for drug dealing and welfare checks on vulnerable people.
Assistant Chief Constable for Wiltshire Police Mark Cooper said officers created a "ring of steel" against organised criminals in the region.
“We know that those who supply and distribute illegal drugs operate in a borderless way, creating complex networks of drugs lines in our towns and cities, and we need to mirror that if we are going to be successful in taking a strong and robust stance against this sort of criminality," he said.
"It leads to volume crime, violence that impacts our communities and services for those who are engaged in the use and have medical conditions. It has so many impacts in so many lives and it's really concerning the impact it has on young people," he added.
During the week, police spoke to members of the public at Swindon Railway Station - one of the main routes for drugs into the South West - informing them about what to look out for to help young people who may have been coerced into carrying drugs.
