PCC’s knife crime survey

PCC Mark Shelford is encouraging local people from Avon and Somerset to share their thoughts on knife crime by completing a short survey.

Proactively tackling knife crime forms a central part of Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Mark Shelford’s Police and Crime Plan.

As part of this ongoing effort a new survey has been launched to gain a greater understanding on how knife crime is perceived in local areas.  

Open to all local residents, it carries several highly important aims:  

  • To gauge how perceptions of knife crime impact people’s feeling of safety  
  • To understand reasons why people may carry knives
  • To raise awareness of work being carried out to tackle knife crime across Avon and Somerset  
  • To gain insight into what approaches local people view as important to combatting knife crime 

The feedback from this survey will help us shape and improve how we respond to knife crime locally.

This survey is anonymous. None of your answers will make you identifiable and, if you do not want to answer a certain question, you can select ‘prefer not to say’.

The survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.

The survey closes on 21 November.

More information about knife crime can be found at Avon and Somerset Police’s website.
