Operation Sceptre

Alert message sent 12/02/2018 13:35:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Knife Surrender, Monday 12 February – Sunday 18 February 2018


Thames Valley Police is actively targeting knife crime and those who carry knives in the latest phase of Operation Sceptre.


A red knife surrender bin has been placed in St Aldates Police Station for members of the public to safely dispose of knives that they wish to surrender.


Chief Inspector Marc Tarbit based at Oxford Police station said “Knife crime is a priority for Oxford Police as it is often associated with organised crime and drug dealing.


“Officers have made eight arrests on the street in the last two weeks and knives have been seized on two occasions. Stop and Search is a key power in helping police to protect the public from the harm of carrying knives.


“I would encourage people to consider the kind of knives they own and the risk of them being used for criminal purposes. If in doubt please surrender them in the bin we have put in the reception area of St Aldates Police Station.”


If you have any information about the possession of knives or criminal activity relating to this type of crime, please call 101 or alternatively you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
