North Wales Police Support Coleg Cambria in Zero Tolerance Drugs Initiative ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Coleg Cambria and North Wales Police have been working together to drive home the message of zero tolerance of drugs to students. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

As part of a number of college initiatives, North Wales Police recently assisted in carrying out a drugs detection operation at Coleg Cambria’s five sites; Deeside, Yale, Bersham Road, Northop and Llysfasi. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Although over 800 students were screened in these latest checks, no students were found in possession of drugs. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The operation was only possible with the services from Wagtail Ltd and support from police officers from Wrexham, Connah’s Quay and Flint. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Paul Shanley, Security Officer at Coleg Cambria who coordinated the searches said:  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Operations such as these help to reinforce Coleg Cambria’s zero tolerance policy on drugs. We will continue to work with the police and Wagtail on similar events in the future.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
