VS responds to MoJ statistics on knife crime possession and sentencing

9 June 2016

Mark Castle, Chief Executive at independent charity Victim Support, said:

“Alongside this rise in knife possession offences, we are also seeing a worrying rise in the number of knife crimes recorded by the police.

“Knife crimes shatter the lives of so many – particularly young people and their families. More must be done, by agencies and educators working in partnership, to educate people about the dangers of carrying weapons.”
