Humberside Police: Over 200 knives handed in as part of Operation Sceptre!

As part of the national campaign Humberside Police put sealed bins at seven of stations across the force and, between Monday, February 12 and Sunday, February 18, you could hand in knives without having to answer any questions or leave any details.

Humberside Police are delighted to say that more than 200 blades – ranging from small knives to Samurai swords – were handed in.

Chief Inspector Paul Butler, who oversaw our local amnesty, said: “It’s great that so many people made the decision to bring their knives in, so that they can be disposed of safely.

“This campaign was about getting as many knives off our streets as possible, preventing them from being used to harm or threaten our communities.

“I would like to thank everyone who shared our appeals or brought in knives.”
