Hull: Knife amnesty launches next week

Message from Humberside Police:-

We are asking people to hand in knives as part of Operation Sceptre, a national knife amnesty, starting on Tuesday 18 September 2018.

Between Tuesday 18 September and Monday 24 September 2018 sealed knife bins will be located at the following police stations: Beverley, Bridlington, Goole, Grimsby, Hessle Road, Osborne Street and Scunthorpe. 

This means that you will be able walk in to any of these stations and drop your knives in the bin.  There will be no need to complete any forms or speak to an officer or staff member.

Detective Superintendent Jo Roe, overseeing the knife amnesty for Humberside Police, said: “This amnesty is the second national initiative aimed at encouraging people to hand in knives and blades. 

“The campaign is about keeping our communities safe by continuing to rid our streets of as many knives as possible.  Our amnesty bins are accessible at a number of local  stations, and if you deposit a knife with us we will dispose of it in a safe and secure manner. No questions will be asked, even if the knife is banned.  This is one of a number of tactics we employ to prevent knives falling into the wrong hands. It’s an initiative that you, the public, can help us with too. The message from us is that every knife handed in is one less that could be used to harm or threaten our communities.  You can help us by participating, or by sharing details of the amnesty which we will be highlighting through our web site and on our social media channels.”
