Knife Crime Awareness Week - Aylesbury Vale

Alert message sent 09/02/2018 10:54:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Knife Crime Awareness Week – Aylesbury Vale


On the Monday (12/02) to Sunday (18/02) Aylesbury Vale Local Policing Area (LPA) is taking part of Operation Sceptre, the national knife crime awareness week.


In recent months there has been a rise in the number of knives recovered from people involved in crime. 


Thames Valley Police is appealing to the public to remain vigilant and contact the police on 101 or 999, if they have any information relating to the purchasing, selling or possession of knives that might be used in crime. 


This information can also be passed anonymously through to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, or report it online.


Inspector Nikki Hemming, said “We are working with our schools and communities to raise awareness around the dangers of knives and the catastrophic consequences that can come about by carrying one. Not only can this have a devastating impact on the lives of anyone injured, but also people found in possession of them, along both families.


“I am appealing to the members of our community within Aylesbury Vale LPA to come forward and provide any information about anyone they think might be selling knives to underage individuals.


“We also need to know about anyone purchasing them for their own illegitimate use or believed to be currently in possession of a knife or other weapon, so that we can take as many of these off the street and continue to protect the public”


From Monday (12/02) there will be a bin located in the front counter of Aylesbury Police Station for anyone to surrender any items they wish.
