    We have regular meetings between the wider North Somerset and force teams to actively update and monitor our latest risk addresses – anyone at risk is visited regularly and any unwanted visitors causing issues relating to drugs are removed and arrested if offences exist.

    In the last week, we have arrested five individuals by our team alone, on top of other arrests by assisting teams. The patrols, visits and pressure will continue from our team and the other units to make Weston as hostile as possible to drug dealing.

    Any information you have that can assist us, please contact PS Harper via the form on our main Weston Town Centre page.

    A specialist team of officers focused on tackling drugs offences and county lines have greatly increased the number of arrests and pressure on identified county lines to the extent that we have reduced the number of lines operating in the town
