County lines and criminal exploitation: A lifespan perspective
‘County lines’ refers to the practice of exploiting children, young people and adults to traffic drugs across county boundaries using dedicated mobile phone lines or other forms of ‘deal line’. It is estimated that in 2018 there were more than 1000 branded county lines across the UK (National Crime Agency, 2019).
This Frontline Briefing examines existing research, knowledge and learning on county lines from child and adult sectors across rural and urban settings. It explores how and why people may be exploited at different times of their lives and offers a practical tool to support practitioners in identification and effective intervention.
Designed for: All those working in children’s, youth and adult services.
