In it’s January 2020 report, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire  & Rescue Services has urged the response to county lines gangs to go further, calling for a number of recommendations. The recommendations include changes to police intelligence, prioritisation and joint working more efficiently.

Despite commitments by the NCA, NCLCC, Home Office and others, county lines gangs and associated problems persist in local areas, and it is now key that stakeholders work together to tackle trafficking and protect the vulnerable.

Join us on the 29th October to receive a national update on the response to county lines gangs. We will review best practice in intelligence sharing, working across stakeholders in education to policing and explore best practice in safeguarding the vulnerable.

Key issues to be addressed:

  • An update from the National County Lines Coordination Centre (NCLCC)

  • Receive a Government update on national developments and local responses

  • Review recommendations from HMICFRS report on the response to County Lines

  •  A National Update on County Lines

  • Guidance on Safeguarding Vulnerable Children and Adults

  • Developing a multi-agency approach to tackling county lines gangs

Who should attend?

Delegates will be drawn from anyone with an interest in tackling county lines gangs and supporting the vulnerable.
