Weapons amnesty in South Cambs

Dear Resident,

We’re holding a weapons amnesty next week allowing people to hand in knives and other items without being prosecuted.

As well as knives, the amnesty will cover items such as knuckledusters, extendable batons, curved swords and zombie knives that have been made illegal to own.

The week-long amnesty will include bins at Cambourne Police Station on Tuesday (14 May) from 7am until 4pm, Histon Police Station on Wednesday (15 May) from 10am until 12pm and Sawston Police Station from 10am until 12pm.

The weapons amnesty forms part of the national ‘Operation Sceptre’ knife crime week of action. It will also include extra police patrols in ‘hotspot’ areas, targeting those believed to be carrying knives, work in schools and with retailers who sell knives.

For more information on the amnesty you can visit our website. 

Kind regards,

Tim Goddard

Communications officer
