Street Level Drug Dealing Campaign - Operation Torus


Operation Torus is a policing initiative which deals with the issue of street level drug dealing across Northern Ireland.  The campaign is designed to encourage reporting of drug dealing.  Additional resources have been allocated to specifically target street level drug dealers across Northern Ireland.

Tackling the issue of drugs is a policing priority.  Police are committed to protecting communities and are working with local residents, community representatives, businesses and elected representatives to tackle the issue of drug supply.

The Police Service is working hard to gather intelligence on drug related crime and have been working in partnership with local neighbourhoods across Northern Ireland.  Trust has been developed so that those with concerns about drugs are now coming forward with information.  

The more support and information we receive, the greater our capacity to build cases against individuals involved in drug dealing and bring them before the courts.  We also need help from the public and would urge anyone who has any information on drug dealing to come forward to the police.  Any information received will enhance our opportunities of seizing drugs and thereby creating safer communities for everyone.

If you see or know of any drug dealers in your area, contact your local Neighbourhood Policing Team on 101 Non Emergency Number or alternatively, information can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or through the Crimestoppers website www.crimestoppers-uk.orgexternal link opens new window.

Calls to Crimestoppers are not recorded, there is no caller ID facility and callers will not be asked for their names.

Calling Police or Crimestoppers can help make your community safer.

If you are a victim of crime you should report this to your local police.
