Please Note:

Prior to the publication of the 'Drug Seizures by Scottish Police Forces, 2010-11' bulletin in April 2012, the previous bulletin 'Drug Seizures by Scottish Police Forces, 2005-06 and 2006-07' was published by the Scottish Government in June 2008 and contained data from 1996-97 to 2006-07. There was a break in the series between the publication of these two bulletins and as a result, there are no data available for the three year period 2007-08 to 2009-10.

Additionally, due to the break in the series, the data for 2010-11 onwards are not directly comparable with the data for 1995-96 to 2006-07.
