Between July and September, Kent Police shut down 18 more county lines gangs.
Another 37 people were arrested in September as part of Kent Police’s ongoing crackdown on county lines drugs supply.
Enforcement work by the County Line and Gang Team has also resulted in 40 charges linked to the distribution of heroin and crack cocaine.
Officers executed 28 search warrants and street disruption by plain clothes and uniformed patrols led to almost 30 stop and search checks.
Matthew Scott, Kent Police and Crime Commissioner, said “I will not tolerate these evil gangs dealing their drugs and bringing their violence into our county. Using your council tax, the Chief Constable and I have been able to boost efforts to track them down and bring them to justice.
“Our Violence Reduction Unit is working on ways to engage and divert young people, and I have funded great charities like the St Giles Trust and others to get gang members out of a life of crime.
“This work will not stop. Well done to the Officers, Staff and volunteers for shutting down more county lines.”
