Appoint a government Tsar to champion the reduction of knife crime

Petition Details

Invest in our young people by appointing a leader/champion to reduce the number of young people being killed by knife crime. Make our young people’s safety a priority.

Additional Information

Every year there are tens of thousands of reported knife crime offences, leading to thousands of hospital admissions. This puts immense pressure on police, the NHS and local communities.

We do not want any more young people dying before reaching their potential.
