Chief constable says gangs exploiting younger people

The chief constable says community intervention is one of the key ways to stop young people entering the drug trade.

It's after violent crime has risen on the Island for a third year in a row, some of which is due to drug-related debt collection.

The problem has been traced to gangs in Liverpool, which use younger people as dealers, to receive packages, and hide cash. 

Chief Constable Gary Roberts says violence is a direct result of drug trafficking, though many who suffer don't want the police to get involved. 

Anonymised data from the hospital's emergency department supports the link between violent crime and drugs.
