St Giles, S0S+ Norfolk Professionals' Webinar
Our Gangs & County Lines Professionals' Session consists of speakers utilising their lived experience within the criminal justice system to unpack and explore the realities and consequences of county lines drug smuggling, gang involvement, criminal exploitation and serious youth violence. Perspectives from previous perpetrators and runners/transporters, combined with relevant case studies, aid audiences in gaining an authentic and credible understanding of this complex and cross cutting issue. The training has been delivered to a range of professionals working with at-risk young people across England and Wales.

After the session, professionals will be able to:
• Define the term county lines
• Outline the operational procedures involved in setting up a county line
• Explain the methods used to groom, recruit and exploit young people
• Have an awareness of the push and pull factors that contribute to a young person becoming vulnerable and susceptible to county lines involvement
• Recognise key signs and indicators that young people are being exploited or at risk of county lines involvement
• Describe the relationship between county lines and other forms of criminal activity and exploitation (i.e. serious violence, human trafficking, debt bondage, modern slavery and child sexual exploitation)
• Explain the risks and consequences of county lines involvement
• Understand the perspective of either a survivor or perpetrator after hearing from an expert witness, including a brief overview of how girls are used
• Develop initial long-term and solution-based approaches to prevent and reduce the risks associated with each stage of the county lines process, inc. realistic exit strategies.
