College Supports Police to Reduce Knife Crime

Langley College has joined forces with Thames Valley Police to raise awareness and reduce knife crime in the community following incidents in the local area in recent weeks.

This morning, Tuesday 17th November, knife arches were set up to screen students as they entered the campus. The police were also on hand to provide information and advice about knife crime and how to avoid dangerous situations.

CEO and Group Principal, Kate Webb was keen to reiterate how important it is to support the police in tackling this issue that has become so prevalent in the community and said: “We have always worked closely with Thames Valley Police, including providing a touch down police station at our campus. Today is about raising awareness around the seriousness of carrying a knife. We have always taken a proactive stance in tackling issues that are current in our wider community and none more so than the dangers of carrying weapons.”

Thames Valley Police commented on the effectiveness of such screening exercises and thanked the staff and students for their support.

Principal of Langley College, Maxine Wood also commented and said: “Today’s exercise was important to demonstrate to our students that we take knife crime extremely seriously. Not only is this about preventing crime, but also making sure our college is a safe and secure environment for everyone to learn and work in.”

Thames Valley Police will continue to work closely with the college with its ongoing education programme delivered to students through tutorials and workshops.
