Tackling street-level drug dealing


Armagh, Banbridge & Craigavon PCSP have been working in partnership with PSNI and Crimestoppers to tackle street level drug dealing in the area.

They have produced a multi media campaign to raise awareness of the resources available to the public to report crime and community concerns.

PCSP Chair Cllr Joe Nelson said the PCSP is committed to highlighting the impact of drugs communities, explaining:  “Our ultimate aim is to give confidence tocommunities to report drug dealing and make our cities and towns safer places for everyone. We can all play a part in stopping it by reporting drug dealers. We also want those taking drugs, their families or friends, to seek support from local services to make changes before it’s too late.”

Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon PSNI Chief Inspector Jon Burrows said:  “In order to tackle this type of criminality, it is imperative we get information from the community. Those involved in drug dealing bring misery and heartache to the areas they operate, with complete disregard to the lives they destroy. This advertising campaign shows the various methods of reporting criminal activity both through policing channels and also anonymously.  Crimestoppers plays a vital role in reducing the fear of speaking out against those intent on causing hurt and harm.”
