Chief Inspector Mike Adamson said,

“We are really happy with the results we have had over the last couple of days with the operation.

"We know it has had a disruptive impact on those involved in this sort of activity in Chorley and feedback from the local community has been really positive.”

Operation Hawk is an intelligence-led operation targeting Organised Crime Groups who are operating in the area.

Chief Inspector Mike Adamson continued;

“We hope that that local people feel reassured by what they have seen of the activity and will feel more comfortable in coming forward to pass on any information they may have that could help us to continue to tackle the problem.”
