Launch of Op Sceptre – National campaign to tackle knife-crime

Humberside Police are supporting the national campaign to tackle knife crime – Operation Sceptre.

During this week, 13-19 May 2024, there will be an opportunity to surrender any knives, bladed weapons, and offensive weapons into police stations across the region.

Following legislation, brought in on the 14 July 2021, it is illegal to own certain items including knuckle dusters, zombie knives and throwing stars – even within a private dwelling.

Knife bins will be placed outside of the following stations: Goole, Bridlington, Grimsby, Barton, Pocklington, Clough Road, Osborne Street, Beverley, and Scunthorpe.
