About The Webinar

Leicestershire Police: Addressing The Online Drugs Trade

Webinar Runtime: 34 Minutes

In this webinar James Edmondston, Substance Misuse Officer and Katie Hudson, Children & Young Persons Officer from Leicestershire Police will be looking at some of the new and emerging ways in which young people are accessing drugs, and the dangers they are being exposed to. The traditional view, is that to get hold of drugs you need to interact with a dealer on the street, however, a growing trend particularly in young people is to source substances online, including via social media and messaging apps.

Learning Outcomes

  • Improve knowledge of which substances are currently popular with young people

  • Examine the dangers associated with these substances and the risks young people are exposed to when trying to access drugs in this manner

  • Give an understanding of how young people access substances online and highlight some of the tactics employed by online dealers to appeal specifically to young people

  • Look at some case studies of young people’s experiences with this online drug market

  • Understand what is meant by a harm reduction approach

  • Look at the best ways to engage and inform young people around substances in your educational setting
