If you are going to the Derby match tomorrow (Saturday 2 April) at Pride Park look out for our anti-knife crime messages.
The work to reduce this type of crime is one of our priorities and continues all year round.
Recent events show us that people are still intent on carrying knives and bladed weapons and we all need to work together to prevent the tragedies that his can cause.
Our knife crime lead, Superintendent Sarah McAughtrie said: “We thank Derby County for their help in delivering the message of just how dangerous it can be to carry a knife.
“Our intelligence shows that for too many people, especially the younger members of our community, picking a knife up is becoming a habit.
“We are determined to work hard to prevent the heartache that the consequences of this can bring, not only to the victims, but also the families of all those involved.
“We can’t do this together and need all of us to become part of the solution, if seeing these messages makes just one person think of the consequences of carrying a knife and then prevents a death or serious injury to them or someone else, it will be worthwhile.”
