Evidence briefing to inform decisions about approaches to tackling knife crime.
This briefing provides police and crime reduction partners with:
- a summary of the evidence on factors associated with knife crime
- strategies and interventions to tackle knife crime
Evidence has been identified through a non-systematic search of the literature, taking reliable sources and government strategy and research reports as a base and consulting with subject matter experts to ensure the synthesis presents a rounded picture.
It is not intended to review all of the available research evidence, nor present a formal assessment of its quality.
