This course will give an understanding of the methodology and modus operandi of drug distribution along county lines. This spread of serious criminality into new rural markets represents a difference in patterns of criminal behaviour and of an expansion of drug use into previously minimally affected areas. This will explore the different County Line models and of the behaviour of the offenders as they spread their markets. It will also look at victims and how they can be coerced into assisting the offenders to develop their business outside of their traditional urban market-place.

The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  1. To know what 'County Lines' are
  2. To understand traditional drug markets
  3. To understand vulnerabilities and indicators
  4. To know the context of criminal exploitation
  5. To know the barriers to engagement
  6. To understand the importance of language
  7. To identify how major drug dealers control the lines into rural drug markets
  8. To understand how major drug dealers organise and supply these markets
  9. To look at how vulnerable individuals are groomed, coerced, and forced into assisting them
  10. To be aware of the impact these county lines have on local communities

This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
