NEW South Wales police arrested 800 people and seized more than $2 million worth of cannabis during a three-day blitz targeting anti-social behaviour.
Operation Supervikings, which ended at 6am (AEST) today, involved more than 3700 police in Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong.
"People are uncomfortable if they can't have a good night out or go shopping or take the kids out for day's sun without people being a nuisance, irritating them or worse," NSW Police Minister Carl Scully said today.
"Offensive language, assault, graffiti, vandalism, malicious damage - these are all the things the community expects the police to deal with and they have.
"I won't have it said these things are insignificant."
Mr Scully said "Supervikings" was the biggest Vikings operation since the ongoing police crackdown on anti-social behaviour was launched in May 2002.
Detectives, plain-clothes police and general-duty officers laid 975 charges for offences including affray and armed robbery and seized almost $2 million in cannabis from three properties.
Officers say they raided three properties in south-western Sydney and discovered 10 kilograms of dried cannabis and nearly 500 plants.
The Government has allocated $20 million for Vikings operations over four years.
Another Supervikings operation will be conducted around the end of June.
