A 17-year-old has been charged with possessing this double-bladed knife
Superintendent Phil Healy, said: “Tackling violence in Coventry has been made a West Midlands Police priority; it means the city is benefitting from a significant uplift in officers patrolling the city centre with traffic units, response officers, armed patrols and other support teams all increasing their presence here……………..“In addition to increased patrols and proactive operations, intelligence work has been going on behind the scenes to more accurately map the make-up of street gangs and organised crime groups operating in Coventry – and to disrupt their activity. ………………“The results achieved so far should reassure visitors to the city centre and surrounding area that we are determined to catch and convict people who are seeking to cause harm – and send a strong message to offenders.”
These have been recovered during weapons sweeps of parks in the city centre
Last week, Coventry Police and key partners came together at a Violence Summit in a bid to identify a collaborative approach to making the city’s streets safer: The aim is to create a taskforce comprising a range of agencies working to address the root causes of violence and intervening early in vulnerable people’s lives before they commit offences.
Supt Healy added: “We really need our communities to work with us to make Coventry safer. If anyone suspects someone routinely carries a weapon, is dealing drugs or involved in any other criminality then please let us know so we can take action.”
