During 2001-02, the estimated street value of controlled drugs seized in all operations involving the Scottish Drug Enforcement Agency (including those involving Scottish police forces) was £19.9 million. Equivalent figures for individual divisions of police forces are only available on a calendar year basis. The estimated street value of controlled drugs seized by L Division of Strathclyde Police in the calendar years 2001 and 2002 was £686,000. The estimated value of drugs seized is of course different from the value of assets recovered.
