County Lines in Northamptonshire - Free Parent Webinar

Join our county lines awareness events
Free County Lines and Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE) awareness events are being made available to parents and carers in Northamptonshire during May, July, and October this year – the next online session is planned for Tuesday 17 May.
These interactive, virtual events enable participants to learn more about how to keep their children safe from criminals who exploit young people.
The webinars, funded by the Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, are an opportunity for parents and carers to learn from a panel of experts what criminal exploitation is and how to spot signs it may be happening to their child
The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions, share concerns and connect with others.
County Lines is a form of criminal exploitation in which criminals groom and manipulate children into committing illegal or
criminal acts on their behalf, such as drug dealing – meaning the youngsters do most of the work and take the most risk.
Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold, said: “I am really pleased parents will be able to access these valuable webinars. I want as many parents, carers, and professionals who work with children and young people as possible, to be aware of this information.”
