Knife Crime Awareness Week 11-17 March

Friday, March 8th, 2019

Thames Valley Police, along with other forces, will be taking part in a variety of activities between Monday 11th March and Sunday 17th March, designed to challenge and reduce the threat of knife crime.

These include:

red knife amnesty bin

  • Working with professional partners including local schools, colleges and Trading Standards;
  • Knife surrender bin at Amersham Police Station;
  • Information and advice being posted on social media; look out for #OpSceptre hashtag
  • Enforcement patrols

Any type of knife or bladed article can be safely deposited in the red surrender bin at Amersham police station (behind Chiltern District Council offices). This is the ideal time to dispose of these items that you are not sure what to do with.
