Seizures of drugs in England and Wales, financial year ending 2017
This release presents figures for drug seizures made in April 2016 to March 2017 in England and Wales by the police (including the British Transport Police) and Border Force.
Applies to England and Wales
In this publication the numbers of seizures made are affected by police activity and changes in recording practices and police powers, such as the introduction of cannabis warnings. Therefore, the number of drug seizures made and quantity of drugs seized should not be taken as measures of drug prevalence in England and Wales. This is addressed in the drug misuse publications, based on results from the Crime Survey for England and Wales.’
