Think Life - NOT Knife

Police and Wakefield Students say not in our city Thursday, 30th September, 2010
Think Life Not Knife.

West Yorkshire Police and students from Wakefield will hold an anti gun and knife crime event in the city centre on Saturday, 2nd October under the banner 'Not in Our City'.

The event is a joint venture between West Yorkshire Police's PC Rory Romani, who is behind the 'Think Life Not Knife' campaign (a weapon awareness presentation that has now been given to thousands of children at schools and youth groups across the region), as well as Wakefield NPT and Wakefield College.

The campaign has been created in a bid to raise weapons awareness across all ages and has recruited students from the college to help out.

On Saturday, students from the colleges, as well as officers from the Wakefield Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) and Operational Mineral, will be in the city centre to raise awareness about the risks of getting involved with weapons and gang culture.

The campaign will see police and students talking to members of the public and handing out leaflets featuring information on the police's Think Life Not Knife work across the region. This follows a week long anti-knife campaign that PC Romani will be holding at the college.

PC Rory Romani - of the Operational Support Division - said: "Following on from the success of Operation Mineral I wanted to take the messages from that work to a wider audience. I also want to show the people of West Yorkshire - not just the region's young people - both the dangers of
getting involved with weapons and how seriously the police deal with weapon-related incidents."

Inspector Richard Close of Wakefield NPT added: "This event will ensure that these important messages are delivered by PC Romani and the NPT officers. This is an opportunity for officers to have quality, face to face interaction with the communities we serve and to speak openly about these difficult issues."
