We remain committed to reducing knife crime offences.

We aim to deter people from carrying knives and educate them about the dangers of doing so.

We also want to provide support and advice to those who know a knife carrier and for parents, carers and bystanders to be able to spot the signs.

We want to provide messages of hope to empower the young people of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

As part of the #LivesNotKnives campaign we want to share the message that 'You matter, lives can change'.

We continue to be committed to working with the Violence Reduction Network and our partners to tackle knife crime and address its underlying causes.
