Operation Blunt removes hundreds of knives from our streets

Police ask residents to be vigilant

Wandsworth Police received over a hundred knives in a month-long campaign to get the weapons off the street. 
Operation Blunt began in December and knife surrender bins were placed outside police stations for people to do their part for society and dump their knives and blades.

Borough Commander Joe Royle

A selection of the knives handed in were designed to be offensive weapons.   Chief Supt. Joe Royle seen with a slection of the weapons said, 'Some very nasty knives were handed in and a major motivation of Operation Blunt was to educate the public, especially teenagers, on the dangers of carrying knives.  Both to their personal safety and breaking the law.'
