Child Exploitation & County Lines

Course Title:
Child Exploitation & County Lines
Course Code:

There has been a sharp rise in the number of arrests of teenagers for drug dealing, prompting concern about young people being groomed to work as drug mules in so-called county lines operations.

County Lines is a very serious issue where criminal gangs set up a drug dealing operation in a place outside their usual operating area. Gangs will move their drug dealing from big cities (e.g.  London, Manchester, Liverpool etc.) to smaller towns and recruit by grooming and offering them money to sell drugs in out-of-town locations. This can have a really big effect on the community who live there and bring with it serious criminal behaviour.
Please note that if you are booking from Education Services or from outside the Boroughs of Richmond and Kingston there will be a booking fee of £40
