West Midlands Police County Lines awareness raising week


Week commencing Monday 21st January 2019 West Midlands Police are holding an intensification week to raise public awareness of County Lines. County Lines is when criminals from major cities expand their drug networks to other areas of the country. This activity brings violence, exploitation and abuse to rural communities, using vulnerable adults and children to act as drug runners.

The week will include a variety of disruptions and interventions, the visiting of key locations, gathering intelligence, and the use of social media.  This is a very real issue and is devastating lives.
