505 knives removed from streets
Humberside Police will be taking part in another national knife amnesty later this year as part of the effort to tackle the rising incidents of knife-related crime.
This follows the successful initiative held in March this year when 505 knives and weapons were handed in across the Humberside Force area.
Superintendent Joanne Roe told us: “I am really pleased with the number of knives that have been handed in from our area and it is good to see how we have contributed to this national campaign. We will be taking part in the next knife surrender in September, but if anyone wants to hand a knife or weapon in before then, you can call 101 to arrange for them to be handed in.”
She continued: “We continue our hashtag NoMoreKnives campaign and are visiting every Secondary school in the Force area to give a presentation and talk to students about the dangers of carrying knives.”
