National Knife Crime Awareness week runs from 18th - 24th September this year.
During that time Thames Valley Police, along with other forces will be taking part in a variety of activities designed to challenge and reduce the threat of knife crime. This includes:
* Work with our professional partners including local schools, colleges and trading standards;
* Knife surrender bin at Milton Keynes Police Station
* Information and advice being posted on social media – follow us on Twitter@TVP_MK
* Enforcement operations
You can safely deposit any type of knife or bladed article in our red surrender bin between Tuesday 18 and Monday 24 September. This is the ideal time to dispose of these items that you are not sure what to do with. If you have any such items, please bring them down to Milton Keynes Police Station.
If you are worried about knife crime in your area or if you want to speak to anyone about a specific concern then please do get in touch, please call 101 or alternatively please ring crime stoppers on 0800 555 111
