Dear Parents/Carers
Following our last letter regarding County Lines which we sent in May we wanted to get back in touch to remind you that you can still help. County Lines is the term used to describe the networks of gangs and organised criminals who export illegal drugs into other areas of the country, often smaller areas, using dedicated mobile phone lines known as ‘deal lines.’

They exploit children and vulnerable people to move and store drugs and money. Often, they do this using blackmail, intimidation and violence.

Staffordshire Police are working alongside our partners as part of a County Lines operation which has two aims – to arrest members of organised crime gangs who target young and vulnerable people, but also to identify young people who are at risk of criminality and to help divert them away from criminal exploitation.

We are asking education establishments and parents to help identify young people who are at
risk of criminality, so they can be given help.
