HertsMSP Training Session: County Lines Methodologies

May 24, 2021 @ 9:00 AM - 11:00 PM

In line with National County Lines Awareness Week (17th-23rd May 2021), the HMSP is delighted to offer free training on county lines .

About this event

In collaboration with the National County Lines Coordination Centre (NCLCC) Regional Coordinator, the Hertfordshire Modern Slavery Partnership (HMSP) will deliver a free training session on county lines methodologies and modern slavery for local stakeholders working with adults and children in Hertfordshire.

The Issue: Modern Slavery and County Lines

County Lines is a term used to describe gangs and organised criminal networks that are involved in exporting illegal drugs into one or more importing areas within the UK, using dedicated mobile phone lines or other form of ‘deal line’. Perpetrators are known to exploit children, young people and vulnerable adults to move, manufacture and store drugs, as well as money through deception, coercion, intimidation, violence (including sexual violence) and weapons. This exploitation is a form of modern slavery covered by the Modern Slavery Act within the UK.

The Training Session

This training session is designed to provide a better understanding of modern slavery and county lines through providing information on:

  • Methodologies
  • National trends
  • What NCLCC is doing
  • Safeguarding and Disruption Tools
  • Case Studies
  • National/local contacts and materials

An online link to the training will be sent via email prior to the training session date.
