Easy read documents to raise awareness of county lines crime

A big thank you to Chris Langman from Stratford who has created two fantastic easy read documents to help raise awareness of the signs of people being exploited by county lines drug criminals.

Chris (pictured left), who has learning disabilities himself, made the documents in his own time to support the force's week of action on county lines drug crime. They have been distributed to local schools to help people spot the signs that someone is being exploited or groomed by county lines drug dealers.

The easy read documents are the latest in a range Chris has produced for Warwickshire Police.

Detective Inspector Ruby Nailor (pictured right) from the Warwickshire Police Offender Management Unit said: "County line drug criminals often target people with learning disabilities and learning difficulties because they see them as being vulnerable. They exploit them and use them to deal drugs. Easy read guides such as these are invaluable in helping us to make people aware of the signs of grooming and exploitation."
