Enforcement and engagement initiatives due to be held during the initiative include
-Community weapon sweeps
-Stop and search operations
-Execution of warrants
-Intelligence-led action against habitual knife carriers
-Test purchase operations
-Engagement events working alongside partner agencies
-Visiting education establishments to talk to young people about the potentially fatal consequences of carrying weapons
-Speaking to retailers that sell knives about security and the national Challenge 25 policy.
-Facilitating more bleeding control kits being in place at community venues across Cheshire (the kit contains equipment and instructions that enable members of the public to prevent knife crime victims from bleeding to death)

To find out what action is being taken in your area please follow your local area police facebook and twitter accounts.
