Have you heard of County Lines?

Alert message sent 10/03/2022 15:31:00

Information sent on behalf of Staffordshire Police

County Lines is the name given to drug dealing activity where organised criminal groups (OCGs) exploit, traffic and manipulate young and vulnerable people into moving and selling drugs, usually from cities into smaller towns and rural areas.

Gangs will often recruit people under false pretences to distribute the drugs, often referred to as ‘drug running’.

If you have concerns that you or someone you know may be being exploited and involved in County Lines, you can report this to us in a number of ways; either on our website, by calling 101 or via social media.

There is also more information on or website, including other support services: https://www.staffordshire.police.uk/countylines
