Officers will be warning a community about the dangers of drug dealing after a murder related to County Lines.
Norfolk Police will be attending the quarterly meeting of the Safer Thetford Action Group (STAG) three months after David Lawal, 25, from Hackney, was found stabbed to death in Brandon Road, Thetford.
Police said the gym instructor's death had all the hallmarks of being connected to County Lines drug dealing and arrested 16 people.
Elie Saba, 33, of Goddards Way, Ilford, and Iddi Zito, 18, from Essex Street, East London, have been charged with one count of murder and conspiracy to supply class A drugs.
Two 17-year-old men from Greater London, who cannot be named for legal reasons, have also been charged.
