Speaker(s): Prof John Pitts, University of Bedfordshire
For the past ten years Professor John Pitts has undertaken
studies of gangs and gang crime in London, Manchester, West
Yorkshire and East Anglia.
In this seminar John will outline his view of the evolution of illicit
drug distribution in England and Wales in the recent period, its
impact upon the nature of youth gangs and gang crime in the
metropolitan areas and its effects on the young people and their
families in the targeted destinations. He will also ask participants to
recount their experiences of working with gang-involved young
people and their views about the effects of the drugs business on
young people and their families in County Lines target destinations.
