Knives cost lives

Knife Crime is any crime that involves a sharp or bladed instrument and is becoming an increasing concern across the UK .

For us to do more, we need to know the size of the problem. The Cut It Out campaign is in it's infancy and will continue to grow. Firstly we would like to raise awareness about proper reporting of knife crime and to encourage people to share any information about who may be carrying a knife.

Self-protection is not a defence. If you feel under threat to the extent you believe it necessary to carry a knife, there are lots of organisations you can contact for help and support. Please see the useful links section. It is never too late to get help.

Merseyside Police take knife crime very seriously and are committed to tackling the issue. They will prosecute perpetrators of knife crime and take action against those carrying knives.

We want you to share any information no matter how small, it may save a life.
