Operation Commander, Detective Superintendent Gavin Dengate said:
There will be a large contingent of overt and covert police, including drug-detection dogs, targeting those taking or dealing illegal drugs, anti-social behaviour, and alcohol-fuelled violence…Recreational drugs are not only illegal, they are also dangerous and potentially life-threatening. They are especially dangerous when mixed with alcohol…Anyone who brings drugs with them can expect to be caught.
