Tackling knife Crime

Tackling knife Crime

Contact Details

In recent years, London has become capital of knife crime. This year, 86 young people have lost their lives because of knife crime. Ilford has been in the headlines for knife crimes in recent months. A number of young people have been stabbed in Ilford. Knife crime is epidemic now in London.


Many people wonder why this is happening now. People say there are many reasons for knife crime. Those committing knife crimes have nothing better to do, are from a broken family, drug addiction, joblessness, no one to look after them, they don’t have a facility to play a game or use their potential and so on. There are other reasons as well. Government austerity in all the sectors, budget cut for the Police Forces and youth service are behind soaring levels of knife crime.


If I am elected, I will put this issue in my top priority. I will ensure more funding for police and youth services in the borough so that the curse of knife crime will not touch us.
