as part of the Government's ongoing commitment to tackle serious
and violent crime, the Home Office has relaunched its County Lines
The campaign aims to raise awareness of County Lines and how to spot and
safeguard potential victims amongst licensed taxi drivers. With the
right knowledge, staff will know how to spot potential victims and report concerns to either the police, anonymously to Crimestoppers, or
safeguard in line with their organisation's safeguarding policy.
Specifically, the campaign seeks to:
Motivate frontline staff to look out for vulnerable
Equip them with the knowledge to identify victims; and
Empower them to report any concerns to the police /
authorities / Crimestoppers.
The campaign pack contains recommended messaging, promotional
social media images and posters that members can download
and share with local taxi firms to raise awareness of County Lines
locally. The campaign pack can be downloaded here.
documents are also available on gov.uk here:
