The theme of the week was ‘knives and the law’ and saw neighbourhood officers visiting schools to provide information to young people about the repercussions of becoming involved in knife crime, as well as a number of weapon sweeps in key hotspot areas, where members of the public had provided information.

“Throughout the week in south division which includes Preston, Chorley, Leyland and Skelmersdale we have recovered 167 knives in total through stop an search, arrests for violence and our knife surrender bins.

“As always we would like to thank you for your support and ask that you continue to provide us with any information regarding knife crime in your area, either through or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111″.
