Be Aware of Cuckooing!

Be Aware of Cuckooing!

Cuckooing is:

A type of crime where a drug dealer befriends an individual who lives on his or her own. The drug dealer then moves in, takes over the property, and turns it into a drugs den.

Victims are often lonely, isolated and vulnerable and maybe drug users themselves.

Signs to look out for:

Increased visitors to an address.
Evidence of drug use in public areas.
Secure doors wedged open.

Contact the Police on 101 or your housing office if you have concerns or information.

In an emergency call 999
