Protecting your child online during the Covid-19 lock-down - advice from Northumbria Police.
County lines is a term used to describe gangs and organised criminal networks involved in exporting illegal drugs into one or more importing areas within the UK, using dedicated mobile phone lines or other form of “deal line”. They are likely to exploit children and vulnerable adults to move and store the drugs and money and they will often use coercion, intimidation, violence (including sexual violence) and weapons. The leaflet below, develop by the Newcastle Safeguarding Partnership, gives more information to parents/carers on what county lines is and how you can keep your child safe from criminal exploitation.
