Today the Home Office announced a £148 million new investment to cut crime and protect communities from illegal drugs. The £148 million package takes a system-wide approach to the problem.
It gives extra resources to law enforcement to dismantle organised criminal gangs and tackle the supply of drugs. At the same time, it delivers more money for drug treatment and recovery to help cut drug-related crime and the cycle of misuse and reoffending. It represents the largest increase in drug treatment funding for 15 years.
