Police in Redcar & Cleveland are appealing for people to hand in knives that could be used as weapons in the run-up to Christmas.
They're holding a 5-week amnesty, and say people will be able to hand in knives without fear of punishment by placing them in special bins throughout the area.
They will be set up at police offices in Redcar, South Bank, Guisborough and Eston, and will be available until 31st December.
Chief Inspector Tariq Ali, Head of Neighbourhood Policing in the area said: "We have run similar amnesties in the past very successfully. However, there is always someone out there who, for whatever reason will have a knife in their possession. So now is the time to do something about it."
