What's Happening In Your Area?




Knife crime issue have been identified through our Humber Talking surveys in and around Scunthorpe Town Centre, the logs, Local intelligence/Force intelligence, Knives have been recovered and seized by the Local Council (James Todd). Identified shops on the high street that are selling knifes and engaged with the shop owners. Posters have also been distributed. Knife arch is due to be utilised at various colleges. As it is believed that many youths are taking knives to college with them for ‘protection’, the students are then walking into the Town Centre/Frodingham Road area in Scunthorpe.

During August the knife arch was deployed 3 times on HIGH STREET, PORTER STREET & FRODINGHAM ROAD. Hundreds of people went through the arch with no resulting stop and searches.
