Knife Crime

If you know someone who is carrying a knife don't keep silent. Report it. Call us on 101 or report knife crime anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers who can be contacted on 0800 555 111 or online at

Incidents involving knives can have tragic consequences. Fortunately, knife crime is not a part of everyday life in Lancashire, but we take all incidents and concerns seriously and work together with Lancashire Violence Reduction Network and other partners on activity to prevent knife and violent crime from happening.

Operation Edge encompasses our knife crime enforcement activity and includes knife bins, weapon searches in public spaces, high visibility patrols and education in schools and colleges. We are committed to preventing knife crime and keeping people in Lancashire safe.

There is more information on our Operation Edge activity below.
