Knife Arches & Knife Wands

Lancashire Constabulary have invested in three Knife Arches and over 30 hand-held knife wands (metal detectors) in daily use across the county. The new equipment, which will assist in searching suspects, comes after Lancashire Constabulary secured government funding to help tackle the problem of increased knife crime incidents. 

The knife arch scans people as they walk through it and is used to support events and operational activity.    

The knife wands are stored within police vans and vehicles throughout Lancashire and are used by officers when carrying out searches and as part of knife crime operations.
