The only way to fight the menace of drugs and organised crime is to continually gather intelligence and make arrests that can put the dealers behind bars.
Operation Myriad has done that with a series of co-ordinated raids on suspected dealers that have resulted in arrests, convictions and drug and cash seizures.
The dealers and their associates never know when the door is going to be battered down and their world of ill-gotten gain come crashing about them.
Short, sharp, high profile and advertised campaigns on certain issues are all well and good, but when it comes to the multi- million pound highly organised drug industry in the West of Scotland, a long-term approach is needed.
The police are conducting a relentless operation to disrupt and break up the criminal networks at every level and as our Crime on Your Street figures show, crime is falling.
We all have our part to play in reducing crime by reporting suspicions and known dealers to the police who can then take action against them.
By working together, communities and the police can help ensure our homes and streets are as safe as possible.
