Hampshire Constabulary is supporting the national week of action to tackle knife crime, #OpSceptre, from Monday 15 November to Sunday 21 November.
During the week, we are encouraging people to use weapon surrender bins in a bid to remove knives from our streets.
The bins are a place where people can safely dispose of a knife, blade or other weapon.
Once deposited in the bin, the blade will become secure until it is removed by professionals.
Last month, we were pleased to see the bins being used at the Yateley Town Council offices and at Aldershot Police Station.
Seventy blades - 40 in Yateley (left picture) and 30 in Aldershot (right picture) - were safely deposited in bins during October.
There is also another knife bin on Totland Close in Farnborough.
A total of 282 knives have been surrendered in all three bins so far this year.
Each bin has been specifically designed to offer maximum safety.
Every knife placed into one of our bins is one less potentially dangerous weapon on the streets of Hart and Rushmoor.
