Eleven people have been arrested in drugs raids carried out across the Borders.
Around 100 officers gathered at 5.30am on Wednesday before carrying out the raids in Galashiels, Selkirk, Kelso and Hawick.
It was the result of six months of tip-offs from the public about people thought to be dealing drugs on the streets.
Officers arrested nine men aged 49, 23, 29, 40, 42, 38, 31, 40 and 43 and two women aged 44 and 39 and charged them under the Misuse of Drugs Act.
Heroin, valium, cannabis and £3000 in cash were seized during the operation.
Detective Chief Inspector Amanda McGrath said: "Following receipt of confidential intelligence from members of the public and concerns raised from our partner agencies, my officers have conducted extensive investigations into drug dealing across the Scottish Borders over the last 6 months.
"With the valued information from the public and support from our partner agencies in bringing this initiative together, my officers have been able to gain vital evidence and information, which has successfully led to the arrest of these individuals.
"We are extremely fortunate to have an excellent working relationship with our partner agencies and the willing assistance and support we receive from members of the public cannot be stressed enough.
"We are committed to listening to our communities concerns and putting in place targeted operations to keep the Scottish Borders a safe place to live, to work and to visit. This is yet another fine example of the invaluable help we receive from the community as a whole."
