County Lines

County lines is a term used for organised illegal drug-dealing networks.

Children and young people are recruited as ‘runners’ to transport drugs and money out of their home towns and cities into other places in the UK, so that the criminals behind the drug trafficking are less visible and less likely to be detected.
