The Mayor

Please find attached as Appendix F a spreadsheet containing knife crime offences broken down as requested. Across London there was a significant 11% reduction in knife crime in the last year.

Knife crime is a key priority for both the MPS and myself, and in June I launched the London Crime Reduction Board's Strategic Ambitions for London: Gangs and Serious Youth Violence. This continues our focus on prevention, intervention and enforcement.
