POLICE in Rubery held a knife crime talk with local cadets, educating the troops on the valuable policing work in their area.

Rubery Troop Army Cadets were educated on knife crime, given a chance to try on police uniforms and got to check out what it felt like to be locked in the cage of a police van when they were joined by PC Aston and Rubery’s Safer Neighbourhood Team.

The Rubery Troop Army Cadets asked the West Mercia Police officers lots of questions and enjoyed sporting the police attire.

The knife crime talk comes just before the start of the national Anti Knife Crime week scheduled from May 15 to May 21.

The week long knife crime campaign will see police raise awareness in the community, particularly with children and young people, about the dangers of carrying a knife.

Anti Knife Crime Week is supported by Operation Sceptre, a national police campaign aimed at ensuring residents’ safety from knife crime in communities around the country.
