RISK

Drug dealers are reliant on county lines for their supplies but with the lockdown these may be disrupted. 

With street drugs in short supply, dealers are likely to be extremely stressed and their interactions with their addicted customers may be fraught with flashpoints for violence. They're also a danger on the roads as they're driving round frantically trying to find ways to get drugs for their customers. 


Dealers are already criminals, often with knives or guns, and they will as  anxious and panicky as the rest of us. 

And the final ingredient for a perfect storm is that they may also be hungry since the fast food restaurants have all closed ..I don't think these are the kind of people to queue patiently at Morrisons.

SOLUTION?

As a solution , I'd suggest considering  immediate lifting of testing at pharmacies such that anyone can be given methadone on request.  I know it sounds crazy but the alternative is probably worse. If the drug users can get their supplies the pressure on the dealers will be relieved.


 
 

email trail..

Better late than never....local couple Craig n dawn , where dawn is heavily reliant on mamba, on Friday night beat up the woman who owns the local off-licence, stole nd crashed a car and have now been arrested. 

But at least they're no longer sleeping in the doorway on my local highstreet as per my photo of them last week!

Keep well & safe xxx

Jane,

Thank you for your email.

We have raised this issue with both police and council officers and here is an extract of the reply we have received.

"On your second point, this is of course very concerning to hear and we very much hope this is an isolated incident. However you are right this could certainly be a risk in the circumstances. I will ask that John Leach who leads around the work on street lifestyles in conjunction with Housing colleagues, liaises with the Police to monitor the situation and to consider possible mitigations and any steps needed in light of that. I can also confirm that Turning Point continue to provide a service to their service users. They are running the homeless team from Eldon street as opposed to the outreach venues, including some continued face to face work with their service users. They are presently adjusting some prescriptions safely to a less frequent collection and have reported no significant issues and actually a more concerted effort by some service users to collect medication and stay on prescription than before COVID-19."

We will of course keep an eye on developments as this is an unprecedented situation and no one knows what the impact of reduced illegal drug supplies will have.

Yours sincerely,

Patrick Kitterick

I'm a job centre adviser and very concerned about the potential risks of interruption to the illegal supply of drugs to some of my caseload.

Please message me with a time if you wish to discuss further by phone.

Thanks
