What is ‘County Lines’?

‘County Lines’ is an emerging national issue that poses significant threat to communities and exploits the most vulnerable members of society. An organised crime group (or urban gang) who extends their drug dealing enterprise across county boundaries is known as running a ‘county line’.

If you suspect drug dealing is taking place or you are concerned that a young person or vulnerable adult may have been targeted by an organised crime group, please REPORT IT

You don’t have to be certain, just concerned.
