Hastings police launch Get a life, Bin that Knife campaign

30 September 2013

Hastings police have launched a campaign 'Get a Life, Bin that Knife' to educate young people on the dangers of carrying knives.

Young people will be reminded of their responsibilities and the risk of carrying knives before they are given the opportunity to dispose of any knives in bins during a month-long amnesty starting on Monday 30 September.
 
Hastings Sergeant Che Donald said: "Although knife crime is not generally problem in the community of Hastings, we did have the high profile case where 17-year-old Jacob Woodstra was stabbed to death on 5 April 2012 and the offenders were sentenced a year ago on 1 October.
 
"With these in the forefront of our minds, it is imperative that we educate young people of the possible consequences of carrying a bladed item. Not only is it illegal, the repercussions can have devastating effects.
 
"This amnesty will give members of the public the opportunity to dispose of any knives without prosecution. Our schools' officers will also be talking to pupils about the dangers of carrying knives at primary and secondary schools in Hastings and St Leonards.
 
"We are also running a competition asking students to design a poster raising awareness of the dangers of carrying a knife. These will be judged with prizes for the best ones."
 
The campaign is being backed by Jacob Woodstra's father, Stephen.
 
The amnesty bin is at Hastings Police Station front office for a month and is open Monday to Saturday 9am to 8pm. Knives and offensive weapons can be disposed of in the bin.
