"Officers have been involved in early morning raids all across the area, targeting criminals who cause harm within our communities."
Around 1,000 police officers, special constables, police community support officers and police staff were involved in the day of action across the force area.
The enforcement action follows on from a campaign to tackle criminals involved in motor crime, burglary and robbery. Over the past two months police have arrested more than 1,070 suspects.
