Police bid to reduce knife crime on streets

Operation Sceptre Police bid to reduce knife crime on streets
Patty Aguilar | 15 February, 2018, 21:57

From 12 to 18 February 2018 police will be warning those who carry a knife that they are far more likely to be injured or killed, and risk being sent to prison for up to four years.

People might think that having a knife is some kind of status symbol, or that they need one for protection, but they don't realise that in 65 per cent of cases, people who carry knives have those weapons used against them. Time and again we see the tragic impact on people's lives as a outcome of them being used.

In relation to knife and sharp instrument offences, 97 incidents were recorded by the force for the same time period, ahead of Dyfed-Powys - 102; North Wales - 234 and South Wales Police - 477.

Activity will be taking place across Greater Manchester, including a variety of enforcement tactics, joint Trading Standards visits to shops selling knives, high visibility patrols and presentations in schools.

This week, forces across the country will conduct weapon sweeps, engage with affected communities and test if retailers will sell knives to young people.

If you are found illegally in possession of a knife you will be arrested, put before the court and brought to justice.

"Rest assured our work to combat this type of crime doesn't stop here".

A recent investigation by the Gazette found three pupils aged 12 or under have been caught with knives at schools across South Tyneside in the last two years - but the figure is small compared to the rest of the United Kingdom where the number of young people caught on school premises with blades has risen by more than a third.

"This is why we continue to carry out specialised operations, on top of the work we do on a daily basis, to remind those thinking about arming themselves with a knife this is something that will not be tolerated, and that if caught, they will be dealt with appropriately".

Throughout the week GMP will be supporting the national campaign using the hashtag #StopKnifeCrime across social media channels, including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
