A SPECIAL police drugs squad marked the end of its first year with a series of raids across Huddersfield.
The Kirklees District Drugs Team was set up last June and has since made almost 400 arrests, seizing drugs worth £697,000.
Most of the arrests - 341 - were people suspected of supplying Class A drugs, such as heroin and crack cocaine.
The team heralded its first anniversary yesterday with another day of action.
Three men were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs after police stopped a car in Lowerhouses.
The men are still in custody.
A 39-year-old Bradley Mills man was arrested and later charged with possession with intent to supply Class C drugs.
A woman from Bradley Mills and a man from the Scholes area of Cleckheaton were given formal warnings for possessing Class C drugs.
A 35-year-old Dewsbury man was detained on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs. He is still in police custody.
Over the last year the Dob In A Dealer drugs hotline run by Crimestoppers has taken well over 800 calls from people in Kirklees.
Det Sgt Ian Froggett, of Crimestoppers, said: "The response to this campaign has been overwhelming."
And he added that it "shows absolutely no signs of slowing".
Det Sgt Froggett went on: "The public of Kirklees have shown us how much they want to be rid of the scourge of drugs in society, not once, but hundreds of times.
"This hugely successful initiative has led to the identification and arrest of a large number of drug dealers, with some now serving prison sentences."
The police team has also seized assets such as cash and cars worth £523,000 from drug dealers.
Its work led to it receiving a Home Office Commendation.
The man in charge of the team, acting Insp Mick Turner, said: "Drug dealing is a thoroughly evil trade. Together with the public's help, we are determined to bring the perpetrators to book. We simply will not abide drug dealing on our streets."
