Nottinghamshire Police’s commitment to tackling knife crime has continued this week by supporting Operation Sceptre — a national amnesty and week of action.
Operation Sceptre, which runs until midnight on Sunday, March 29, includes a knife amnesty but also shines a light on the force's other work to tackle knife crime — including community weapons sweeps.
