Shabana Mahmood MP backs 'Drop the Knife' Campaign

Crimestoppers and the Sunday Mirror have joined together to launch Drop the Knife: You Only Live Once – a series of events across the UK that will get communities talking about the knife crime and how they can work together to help prevent more lives being lost.

If you have an opinion, this is your chance to be heard. Come and talk about your personal experiences and ask any questions you may have to a panel of representatives from police, local charities, campaigners and government.

The event will be in Birmingham on June 9 at the West Midlands Fire Service Headquarters with:

·      DCI Ian Parnell, West Midlands Police Knife Crime Lead 

·      Adrian Tudway, Head of Operations for Crimestoppers

·      Alison Cope, knife crime campaigner

·      Ben Knowles, Project Manager of the 'Save a Life, Surrender Your Knife' campaign

Thursday, 9 June 2016 from 18:00 to 20:00 (BST)
