Cheltenham Town Knife Amnesty

A knife amnesty has been launched by Police in Cheltenham Town Centre.

The amnesty will take place from Friday 13th to Thursday 19th June, during which time anyone who wants to hand over their knife can take it to Cheltenham Police Station on Lansdown Road for it to be responsibly destroyed.

PC Simon Hartland said; “This amnesty gives people a chance to make the vital decision to not put themselves and other members of the public in danger by carrying a potentially lethal weapon.

“Our message to people who carry knives is to hand them in now and help us keep the streets of Cheltenham safe.”
