Police are gearing up for more drug raids in Doncaster in 2022.

Working in partnership with Davies House, the Doncaster West team have executed numerous drugs warrants and completed regular local authority housing checks to crack down on drug related criminality.

This activity resulted in class A and B drugs removed from the town’s streets, large quantities of cash seized and a number of offenders arrested for various drug related offences.

The team have also worked with members of the community to identify hotspot areas for anti-social behaviour and completed high visibility patrols to prevent this behaviour and improve community safety.

The spokesman added: “We know it is important for you to be able to see what activity is taking place in your area and to keep up to date with your teams’ latest activity, we’d encourage you to follow their dedicated neighbourhood pages on either Twitter or Facebook.”
