West Mercia Police say that they are committed to tackling the threat of County Lines drug dealing in Herefordshire.

County Lines gangs often use children to courier drugs and money across the country.

County Lines is a very serious issue where criminal gangs set up a drug dealing operation in a place outside their usual operating area. Gangs will move their drug dealing from big cities (e.g. London, Manchester, Liverpool etc.) to smaller towns in order to make more money. This can have a really big effect on the community who live there and bring with it serious criminal behaviour.
