Bulletin No: 05
2nd December 2021
Dear Country Watch Members,
During the week beginning November 15th Surrey Police once again supported a national week-long operation as part of our ongoing efforts to tackle knife crime.
Whilst knife crime remains low in Surrey, in comparison to other parts of the country – we continue to see the devastating impact nationally and that's what makes our participation in this campaign so important.
The operational week aims to highlight the risks that carrying a bladed weapon can bring, as well as targeting offenders who use and carry knives.
Our efforts to tackle these issues are not confined to a single week, however during Op Sceptre Surrey Police and partners will carry out activities including targeted, high-visibility patrols and knife amnesties – complementing work that goes on around the clock.
The message to those who carry a knife, or are thinking of carrying one, is to 'See the Bigger Picture' and that carrying a knife does not protect you. It only adds to your vulnerability, placing you in dangerous situations, and serious harm, not to mention the legal consequences of being found in possession of one. Knives destroy lives, altogether affecting you and the people you treasure most around you.
If you're a parent, teacher, or role model – you can make a difference. You can help influence those who carry knives to see the bigger picture and encourage them to think about their decisions before it's too late.

Tandridge Safer Neighbourhood Inspector
