star this property answer text <p>The level of seizures required putting a successful drug trafficker of (a) heroin, (b) cocaine, (c) cannabis and (d) ecstasy out of business is impossible to estimate. <br> <br>There are a number of variables which can affect the impact of disruptive activity. <br> <br>Such variables include the type of commodity seized, for example drugs or cash/assets, the size and influence of a particular drug trafficking business and the roles of those arrested and convicted as a result of any seizure. <br> <br>The Home Office recognises that disruption is not the only method for targeting SOC activity. The SOC strategy which was published in November 2018 outlines a set of capabilities which are designed to respond to the full range of serious and organised crime threats, including those posed by drug traffickers. <br> <br>It highlights our four overarching objectives to achieve our aim:<br> <br>1. Relentlessly disrupt and target action against highest harm and serious and organised criminal networks<br>2. Build the highest levels of defence and resilience in vulnerable people, communities, business and systems<br>3. Stop the problem at source, identifying and supporting those at risk of engaging in criminality<br>4. Establish a single whole-system approach, expanding our global reach and pooling skills and expertise with the private sector<br> <br>In taking this approach, we aim to protect our citizens and our prosperity by leaving no safe space for serious and organised criminals to operate against us.</p>
