Police Asked To Update Knife Crime Stats in Wednesfield North.

I have written to the West Midlands Police asking them to update the statistics for me around knife crime in Wednesfield North.
Those that read my social media sites will remember that I raised this issue a little while back –
I wrote to West Midlands Police towards the end of 2017, about knife crime in Wednesfield North. They reassured me with these facts then. “There had only been 7 reported knife crimes in Wednesfield North from January 2014 through to September 2017.
Less than 2 offences a year.”
But since the murder of the young boy in Wolverhampton and the fact that another youngster was stabbed in Bentley Bridge.
I have asked the Police to comment on the situation currently. Asking if knife crime has risen here in Wednesfield North in the  last 9 months?
From September 2017 through to June 2018.
When I have a response I will place it on my web sites, so that you may see the latest information. Knives are deadly weapons and parents really must keep a watchful eye on their children, helping keep them safe, and safe from others.
Lets all together end the knife culture….
