Police operation resulted in 150 arrests

Operation Loki, Devon & Cornwall Police’s neighbourhood policing operation, resulted in over 150 arrests and over 100 drug seizures.

Amongst the arrests were various offences including anti-social behaviour, drug offences, being drunk and disorderly and assault.

The drugs seized had a street value of over £6,000. The seizures included cocaine, crack cocaine, and heroin.

First launched on 20 March, Op Loki was the Force’s response to dealing with ASB, targeting key areas including Torquay, Exeter, Barnstaple, Plymouth, Truro and Falmouth. After success in Torquay, the operation was also expanded to Paignton.

Whilst the operation had a focus on anti-social behaviour and other activities that make communities feel unsafe, officers tailored their policing tactics to each area’s unique issues. This included high-visibility patrols, traffic operations and operations targeting drugs supply.
