These operations use advanced analytical and intelligence methods to disrupt criminals and dismantle their networks.
Drug seizures play a critical role in targeting the livelihood of criminals and reducing their ability to carry out illegal activities.
Drug seizures also help protect communities from the devastating impact of drugs and the associated criminality.
