Over seeing the bin installations was Sgt Jones. Who also has been doing knife crime talks at schools and also at the police Cadets.
Blackpool Voice sat in to listen to one and it was very informative and hopefully helps for the community to see the knives on the streets are not needed or accepted.
Searches and the arches are also being used on the streets.
If you have a knife. Wrap it up. Take to the bin. No questions asked.
So if you have any old broken knives or ones you don’t want, then drop them off safely. If you have friends who carry knives get them to post them at one of the following bins, the chances are if you carry a knife you are more likely to be stabbed.
Also if you have a business why not click on the link see if you can help.
