SAVE A LIFE SURRENDER your knife: Sussex Police supports national knife crime campaign Sussex Police together with other forces are supporting Operation Sceptre – a national knife crime campaign which aims to reduce the number of people, especially young people, carrying a weapon. Officers will be undertaking proactive activities across the county and encouraging knife owners to give up their blades anonymously as part of a national initiative to tackle knife crime. To enable knife owners to give up their weapons safely and without fear of prosecution, knife bins are located at police stations across Sussex from September 17 - 24. In addition to the amnesty bins, officers will be attending local schools, making test purchases and performing proactive patrols across the county.
