How to spot if your child is being exploited by drug-dealers

Gloucestershire Constabulary is asking parents, carers or professionals who could benefit from learning how to spot the signs of exploitation that often comes with county lines drugs gangs, to sign up to a special webinar.

The special County Lines: South West webinar, organised by Parents Against Child Exploitation, is happening this Wednesday, 2 November, between 7pm-8.30pm.

Their officers are part of an expert panel who can offer help and advice – and it could just save a young person from coming to serious harm.

Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner, and Chairman of the Gloucestershire Combating Drugs Partnership Nick Evans, said: “The illegal drugs market is built on violence and exploitation.

“Alongside tough enforcement to smash county lines, I’m pleased to see the Constabulary is working with neighbouring forces to protect Gloucestershire’s young people from being exposed to this sort of harm and starving the drug dealers of the people they need to ply their gruesome trade.

“It can be difficult to know where to turn when you have concerns about a young person, so I hope this webinar will help parents and those with responsibility for young people spot the signs of exploitation, and know who to turn to for help.

“I’ve signed up, I hope many other parents will too.”
