It Seeks views on guidance in relation to the operation of, and application for, new Knife Crime Prevention Orders (KCPOs) which have been introduced through the Offensive Weapons Act 2019. KCPOs will help to divert those who may be carrying knives, or who are at greatest risk of being drawn into serious violence, away from being involved in knife crime. They will also help to prevent those who have been involved in knife crime from further offending when used following a conviction.
This consultation from the Home Office runs from 15 August to 25 September 2019.
