Stops And Knives

Knife Angel in Telford Stops and Knives

A week or so ago, one of my e-friends from X was Twitter asked whether I had an update on my comparison of Stop/Searches against Knife Crime. I didn’t have one at that time, but it didn’t take too long to knock him up a quick rough and dirty update.

In the first of two very brief posts updating another, the update is shown below.  The only thing about it that needs commenting on is the latest two years when Stop/Searches have reduced and Knife Crime has gone up.

I shall leave it to the Spin Doctors and Think Tanks to explain it, I’m only here to present the facts.
