Criminal networks or gangs use their power and position to groom, recruit and exploit young people to move money and drugs from one area to another. Young people will often be made to travel outside of their local area, often to coastal or market towns, where they use dedicated phone lines or 'deal lines' to sell drugs. If you are concerned about drug-related crime in your area or think someone may be a victim of drug exploitation, please call them on 101.
