Breaking Hampshire Southampton

Last week officers and partners from Southampton’s Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) visited Oasis Academy Lord’s Hill and Oasis Academy Sholing

The point of the visit was to deliver and  educational workshops and talk to students about knife crime and show them why carrying a knife is never the right choice.
We would like to say a big thanks to all the teachers and pupils for having us, and actively taking part in discussions. During the sessions we captured views and ideas on how we can all help to improve things, and these will be included in the plans for tackling knife crime and reducing serious violence in Southampton.
This crucial work was carried out as part of Operation Sceptre – a national week of intensification to tackle knife crime. Activity took place throughout the week involving increased operational policing activity as well as preventative work with schools.
