County Lines...Know The Signs...

County Lines...Know The Signs...

Leicestershire Police is raising awareness of County Lines and the signs that it may be taking place within a community. County Lines is the exploitation of young and vulnerable people to assist with the distribution of drugs. It is a nationwide issue and action has recently been taken by Leicestershire Police through Operation Lionheart to execute warrants and arrest some of those believed to be involved.

The following signs could suggest that someone is being exploited through county lines activity:

  • Gang association or isolation from peers or social networks
  • Missing from home or schools and/or significant decline in performance
  • New friends or relationships with those who don't share any mutual friendships with the victim or anyone else
  • May be carrying a weapon
  • Receiving more texts or calls than usual
  • Sudden influx of cash, clothes or mobile phones
  • Unexplained injuries
  • Significant changes in emotional well-being
