"Kids Don't Cry Anymore" is the 306th episode of The Bill. It was first broadcast in the United Kingdom on 19 February 1991.
June sees a boy being bullied at a playground. On investigation she finds a lunch box with packets in it as well as a notebook with a list of names. The list is of drugs but the prices are kids' prices and the packets hold grass clippings and flour - almost like the children are playing shop. She goes to the local school to see if she can get some names.
Roach's ex-senior officer comes into CID asking for help with a case. He is now head of a security firm and, needing to impress his clients, wants Roach's help with a case. Roach is reluctant because he still hasn't forgiven his old boss for putting an innocent man in prison. While drowning his sorrows, Roach arrests a man at the pub with stolen watches.
