Hampshire Constabulary are running Operation Sceptre during the week beginning 9th November and we want to help raise awareness of this at Wyvern

 Operation Sceptre was launched in July 2015 by The Metropolitan Police Service with the aim of reducing knife crime. In February 2018 all police forces came together in the first national response to Op Sceptre in an attempt to counter a nationwide rise in knife crime. Keeping national momentum, police forces across the country have supported subsequent national weeks of action.

 

Hampshire Constabulary are actively encouraging schools to help raise awareness about the risks and the impact carrying a knife/weapon can have on individuals and the community.

 

Below are links to several resources which our parents/carers might find informational and helpful.
