BASIC LAW - RESTRAINT & USE OF FORCE
Knife awareness and Safety
According to a BBC Newsbeat knife crime survey "25% of people know someone who has been a victim of knife crime... More than half of those questioned said they are worried about teenagers carrying a knife and 44% think the police are unable to protect them from violent crime."
As a further example of confusion and fear regarding knives in the workplace, teachers now have the power to search pupils for weapons, but most have not been trained to do so, and are unsure how or when they should search.
