The B.W.Y Canine Ltd Illegal Tobacco Crime Unit

The first unit of its kind to operate in the UK, the illegal tobacco unit is a mobile trailer educating the public about the dangers surrounding illegal tobacco.

The concept of the illegal tobacco crime unit came about in 2014 as a result of work carried out by Stuart Phillips from B.W.Y Canine Ltd and Russell Sharland, the illegal tobacco manager for Smokefree South West, now Public Health Action (PHA).

Since 2015 the illegal tobacco unit has visited all corners of the UK, working with Trading Standards teams, Public Health departments, Police, Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs and Stop Smoking Services.
