Going Country: Tackling the Continuing Rise of County Lines Gangs and Supporting Victims

In it’s January 2020 report, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire  & Rescue Services has urged the response to county lines gangs to go further, calling for a number of recommendations. The recommendations include changes to police intelligence, prioritisation and joint working more efficiently.

Despite commitments by the NCA, NCLCC, Home Office and others, county lines gangs and associated problems persist in local areas, and it is now key that stakeholders work together to tackle trafficking and protect the vulnerable.
