Crimestoppers and Catalyst Presentations on County Lines and Cuckooing

Alert message sent 25/11/2020 22:09:00

Information sent on behalf of Surrey Police

Dear Surrey Heath members.

As you may remember from previous messages, Emily Drew from Fearless – the youth service of Crimestoppers, and Karen Jones, a Cuckoo worker from Catalyst, kindly provided three Zoom sessions (Oct and early Nov) where they presented material on County Lines crime and Cuckooing.

Criminal gangs have taken too operating across county borders to make it harder for the local police to detect their activities. This is known as County Lines. They also often take over a vulnerable person’s home to use as a local centre for their drug dealing activity. This is known as “Cuckooing”.

The sessions provided covered;
- A short introduction to Fearless and Crimestoppers
- County Lines and how it works
- Cuckooing, what it is and how to spot the signs in your community
- Grooming and recruitment
- County Lines in Surrey
- County Lines in Lockdown
- How to spot the signs
- Signposting to further help

A lot of detail and advice was covered in the sessions and we have been given permission to share the presentation and resources material with the community and I hope that you find these of interest.

Kind Regards
Rob Freeman
