Drug-related knife crime
Hampshire Police would like to inform you that they have been working in your neighbourhood today to reduce knife crime....
We have recently seen an increase in knife-crime in Portsmouth, often incidents are suspected to be drug related. Tackling violent crime, of any kind, is a priority for us.
We are taking robust action to help protect people from harm by taking these weapons off the streets.
We have also placed a knife amnesty bins at Portsmouth Central Police Station, Winston Churchill Avenue, PO1 2DG between Friday 28th Apri and Friday 12 May to encourage people to hand over weapons without fear of repercussions.
You are our eyes and ears out here and your role in helping us help protect you, is vital. Please contact us with any information you have about this kind of activity – if we don’t know about it, we can’t act on it.
