Knife Amnesty and Awareness Day to take place in Milton Keynes allowing people to dispose of weapons

    A knife amnesty and awareness day is being held at Westcroft Pavilion this Sunday at 12pm.

    Shenley Brook End and Tattenhoe Parish Council is hosting a knife amnesty event this weekend (7th August).

    Thames Valley Police, South Central Ambulance Service and other partner organisations will be available on the day to talk.

    A knife amnesty bin allows people who own knives or weapons to voluntarily dispose of them in a safe and legal way. 

    The aims of the operation, which is taking place across Thames Valley, are to remove dangerous weapons from the streets, reduce knife crime and raise awareness of the dangers and consequences of carrying a knife.

    A permanent knife amnesty bin can also be found at Milton Keynes Police Station.
