KentOnline – committee set up to tackle rise in knife crime – 03/04/2019

Efforts are being stepped up to tackle knife crime in Kent.

A committee is being set up to see what public bodies can do to reduce the number of people getting involved in violent offences.

It follows a summit led by Theresa May earlier this week which called for teachers, nurses and police officers to be held accountable for spotting signs among young people.

Police are continuing to investigate three stabbings in Tonbridge, Ramsgate and Herne Bay over the weekend.
