Operation Sceptre – Knife Surrender Bins

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

operation sceptre posterThe latest phase of Operation Sceptre sees Thames Valley Police actively targeting knife crime and those who carry knives.

Nationally, over 4,000 weapons were seized in February this year under the same initiative.

Knife surrender bins have been placed in selected police stations between Tuesday 18 September and Monday 24 September for members of the public to dispose of knives. Within and around our area, these bins are located at Amersham, High Wycombe and Aylesbury. Other locations can be found on the Thames Valley Police website.

Reduction in carrying of knives and associated crime is an ongoing battle. If you have any information about the possession of knives or criminal activity relating to this type of crime, please report online via Thames valley Police website or call 101. Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
