Knife amnesty has started in Haverhill
Tuesday, 1st February 2011.
Suffolk’s yearlong knife amnesty has come to Haverhill for the next two months.
Alongside the three secure bins situated outside Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Lowestoft Police Stations, two red mobile amnesty bins are visiting other police stations across Suffolk.
One of the mobile bins will be situated in the foyer of Haverhill Police Station in Swan Lane during February and March.
Anyone who has a knife or blade they wish to dispose of safely can deposit it in the bin anonymously during opening hours.
Posters highlighting the bin will be displayed at the police station and in community locations.
A number of other initiatives are planned to run alongside the countywide amnesty, including knife crime patrols in Suffolk’s biggest towns and a community TV commercial raising awareness of the possible outcomes of carrying a knife. 'Bin a Blade' is supported by teenage knife crime campaigner Holly Watson and BBC Radio Suffolk.
Haverhill Police Station is open between 9am and 5pm daily.
