Drug Dealers Don’t Care do you?

Drug Dealers Don’t Care do you?

Wed, March 21, 2018

Causeway Coast and Glens Policing and Community Safety Partnership are asking that very question as part of their latest campaign.

In partnership with the PSNI and Crimestoppers, the PCSP want to highlight the damage drugs can cause to family, friends and individuals themselves.

The initiative encourages those who partake in drug use to question their choices and encourages the reporting of drug dealing in the Borough.

Vice Chair of Causeway Coast and Glens Policing and Community Safety Partnership, Ashleen Schenning said:  “The main message of this campaign is that drugs tear lives and families apart, and it is our priority to educate young people on the dangers and ultimately make our towns a safer place for everyone.”

“We work hard with young people, schools and the general public throughout the year to highlight the dangers of drugs and the PSNI are committed to tackling drug through the Policing Plan, however, they need co-operation from the wider community.  Don’t let drugs dealers destroy lives - call Crimestoppers now and help us stop them,”

Superintendent Jeremy Lindsey, PSNI, added: ““Tackling drugs requires a collective response from not just police, but other agencies and the wider community. Disrupting the sale and supply of illegal and dangerous drugs continues to be a priority for local officers and we would encourage anyone with information to contact us so we can take the appropriate action.”
