The commitment in my Knife Crime Strategy is to ensure every school has a nominated Safer Schools Officer (SSO).

Some SSOs will work with one or two schools whilst others will work with a larger group of schools and education providers. The number of schools allocated to each officer varies across London depending on local demand. As such there is no specific number of officers.
