Drug Gangs and County Lines

A campaign has been launched to highlight how criminals are inflicting pain and suffering on vulnerable people.

This campaign aims to raise awareness of a criminal activity called county lines. County lines is when criminals from major cities such as Liverpool, Manchester, London and Birmingham expand their drug networks to other areas of the country. This activity brings violence, exploitation and abuse to rural communities. It is becoming more common in rural areas like ours so we need to be aware that this could be happening here.

If you have any information on county lines drugs networks, you can contact us anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via our anonymous online form.

The crime is called county lines because a single telephone number is used to order drugs, operated from outside the area the drugs are being delivered.
