And Finally – Operation ‘Sceptre’
Operation ‘Sceptre’ is part of a week-long initiative to tackle knife crime across the whole of the UK.
On average, officers are arresting three people a week in Cambridgeshire for knife-related offences.
During the crack-down, the force will be conducting knife-sweeps, talking to retailers about selling to young people, and educating school children through presentations about the dangers of carrying knives.
Please be aware that these reports do not contain all details of all reported crime. We do not publish details of domestic related offences or anything which may put a person at risk if information regarding the crime was made public.
As always, if you have information relating to any offence, or are concerned about any suspicious activities, please contact police by using any of these methods:

Alternatively, you can use 'Crimestoppers' to make a report anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or by using their on-line contact form.
In an emergency, or if you witness a crime in progress, always use '999'.
