During that time Thames Valley Police, along with other forces will be taking part in a variety of activities designed to challenge and reduce the threat of knife crime.  This includes: 
  • Work with our professional partners including local schools, colleges and trading standards (including school talks around the dangers of carrying knives)
  • Knife surrender bin at Abingdon Police Station
  • Information and advice being posted on social media – follow us on Twitter @TVPSouthandVale and Facebook www.facebook.com/TVPSouthandVale
  • Enforcement patrols 
  • Engaging with local knife retailers
You can safely deposit any type of knife or bladed article in our red surrender bin between Monday 11 and Sunday 17 March.  This is the ideal time to dispose of these items that you are not sure what to do with. If you have any such items, please bring them down to Abingdon Police Station, Colwell Drive, Abingdon, OX14 1AU.
If you are worried about knife crime in your area or if you want to speak to anyone about a specific concern then please do get in touch, please call 101 or alternatively please ring crime stoppers on 0800 555 111
