Hertfordshire Police have announced a week of action against knife crime.
Officers will carry out knife sweeps across the county in an effort to reduce the number of weapons on the streets.
Shops will also be targeted, ensuring they are not selling knives to anyone under the age of 18.
The action week will begin on Monday 26 April as part of a national campaign called Operation Spectre.
According to the police knife related crime has been relatively low during both lockdowns, but it is hoped action weeks like this one can take more weapons out of circulation.
Officers will also speak to young people about the dangers of carrying a knife.
