Lets get those knives off the streets

Do you or any of your friends have a knife that you want to get rid of it? Lancashire Police are giving you the opportunity to to dispose of any unwanted weapons anonymously and safely as part of their two week surrender which begins today, 17th October.

Young people may be tempted to carry a knife because they believe it offers them protection – it doesn’t. Not only is being in possession of a knife in a public place a criminal offence, you are also more likely to be stabbed and seriously injured by your own weapon.

Please use the next couple of weeks to hand over your weapons without fear of prosecution, and don’t run the risk of ending up with a criminal record, a life-changing or even worse a potentially fatal injury.

Knife bins will be available at the following designated police stations:

turn-in-your-knife

Blackpool

Morecambe

Burnley

Greenbank (Blackburn)

Colne

Preston

Chorley

Skelmersdale

Ormskirk

Any knives or offensive weapons which are too large for the bins can be handed in at the front counters at the designated police stations, and residents are asked to ensure the knives are wrapped in newspaper or cardboard before they are dropped in the bins or handed in.
