Online Training: Covid19’s Increase In County Lines & Gang Operation

June 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


Children and vulnerable adults are still being forced by gangs to travel from cities to towns and villages as part of “county lines” drug trafficking, according to the head of a police taskforce set up to tackle the problem.

The National Crime Agency revealed this month that more than 3,000 unique “deal lines” were identified in 2019, of which 800 to 1,100 were estimated to be active during any given month. That is a 50% increase on the 2,000 identified in 2018.

With a detailed focus on strategies and techniques when working with young people in and out of the classroom, this 2.5 – hour course covers a wide range of issues of gang related behaviour & Covid-19, social effects, health and the various responses and interventions when working with young people.

A must for any youth engagement worker
