Your reports are important even if they cannot be used as the direct cause for an arrest. They allow the police to be a aware of the problem and provide a reason to undertake an investigation of a person or location.
The investigation may include drug buys made by undercover officers or reliable police informants. These buys are the best evidence and must be made under carefully controlled conditions. During the investigation you may not see any evidence of police activity. If sufficient cause can be established, police may seek a search warrant.
Persons who possess drugs will be arrested. The court may release them on bail however, and they may return to the neighborhood while they await trial. Dealers often move elsewhere or stop dealing after an arrest.
