Operation Scorpion is a well-established collaboration between the five police forces in the South West region (Avon and Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire), alongside their respective offices of Police and Crime Commissioners, South West Regional Organised Crime Unit (SW ROCU) and the charity Crimestoppers.

The operation is aimed at making Dorset and the rest of the South West a hostile environment for criminal gangs and individuals who deal drugs and those who engage in anti-social activity associated with drugs such as antisocial behaviour, violence and theft. The focus of Operation Scorpion is now on targeting drug dealing where it is linked to weapons and violence, and ridding high harm areas of drug-related anti-social behaviour (ASB).
