West Yorkshire had the highest rate of the knife and sharp incident crime outside London last year. There were 4,496 knife and sharp incident offenses in Yorkshire, according to the Office for National Statistics.
Detective Superintendent Chris Gibson, West Yorkshire Police’s Knife Crime expert, said: ‘We are doing everything we can to tackle knife violence – the consequences of which can be horrific – for victims injured or killed, for families caught up in it and for the wider community.’
‘Our message is simple: carrying a knife is never the answer and by carrying a knife you are much more likely to get stabbed yourself.’
‘We are concerned about knife crime and the impact it can have on the communities we serve and we are working tirelessly with our partners to prevent it from happening.’
