  • Tackling Knives
    Since June the Government has been working with ten police force areas in England and Wales to reduce the number of teenagers killed or seriously wounded by knives and to increase public confidence that our streets are safe. Thanks to additional funding, tough new guidance and hard work by the forces themselves, working side by side with local people, the results are already clear.
