Police deploy Knife Arch metal detector at Nottingham tram stop in ongoing operation

Nottinghamshire Police Operation Reacher teams attended Bulwell tram stop with the ‘Knife Arch’ metal detector.

A spokesperson said:

‘We engaged with a number of members of the public, who were interested to know what the strange looking contraption was, and learn details of the ongoing Operation Sceptre campaign.

‘We conducted searches and engaged with the community.

‘After recent incidents where knives have been used to injure people in Bulwell town centre, we are pleased to say that we did not find any body carrying a knife to or from the tram, and through Bulwell today.’

‘We were also able to talk some some young people who have friends affected by knife crime, and were happy to hear that they have distanced themselves from those who do carry knives, and they spoke about how they would hate to put their family through them becoming a victim.

‘Thank you to the public who co-operated and were kind enough to thank us for taking positive steps to deter knife carriers and knife crime.’
