Last year police launched an initiative in Telford that sees police work with other agencies to identify and support young people on the periphery of knife crime. The Steer Clear Programme sees police work with Telford & Wrekin Council, West Midlands Ambulance Service and charity organisations to raise awareness of the consequences of knife crime and provide alternative opportunities to young people.
