County Lines Intensification Week

Dear Watch Member,

This week is County Lines Intensification Week, so to create awareness of what the term ‘County Lines’ means, Pinner SNT and Pinner South SNT officers have respectively delivered leaflets about the organised criminal activity to almost 500 households in Pinner.

By clicking on the link below to inform yourself of what the signs of involvement in County Lines and ‘cuckooing’ are, you can help protect vulnerable people and keep your community safe:
