More than 100 arrests have been made by South Wales Police : Heddlu De Cymru team set up to tackle knife crime in Cardiff.The Op Sceptre Team, named after a national initiative led by the Metropolitan Police, was set up in the summer of 2018 to reduce knife crime and related offences.Knife crime remains rare for the vast majority of our communities but it has risen across South Wales and the rest of the UK.The Op Sceptre team is just one of the ways South Wales Police is responding to the issue. Within six months they have:• arrested 101 people• taken 46 weapons off the streets, and• seized nearly £90k worth of drugs and cash.Detective Sergeant Dan Sweeney, who leads the team, said: “We are mainly a proactive team in plain clothes and unmarked vehicles, enabling us to react and respond to intelligence and incidents. However we can revert to high visibility and uniformed patrols at short notice if and when required. “Our aims are to pursue those carrying, and using knives in a public place, and to pro-actively patrol areas where there are community concerns.“Our work is in addition the work of the Neighbourhood Policing teams, response officers, and detectives, who all are contributing to the fight against knife crime and helping to keep Cardiff safe.” Many of the knives found by the team are the result of weapon sweeps in areas such as woods, parks and bushes where criminals are known to ‘stash’ knives. The team which includes detectives, a dog hander and roads policing officer are all fully trained in the use of Taser.Together they have attended 150 incidents and conducted around 350 stop searches.You can follow the team on the @swpcardiff Twitter account using the hashtag #OpSceptreTeam.Hear the views of our Chief Constable Matt Jukes..... ...

Well done guys 👌 👌

Could you please explain what is illegal and legal. Am I allowed to have a knife on my keyring? Or can carry my Swiss army knife? If I have a metal Parker pen in my pocket is that a pointed article?

Good call SWP.

Well done SWP.

Well done SWP.
