Monitoring and Review
The overall impact of these changes on knife offences will be able to be monitored through the data on weapons offences now being collected by Police. Under the proposals in this paper this data would be shared with the Ministry of Justice and other justice agencies to improve our understanding of knife crime.
The impact of the specific proposals in the paper will be monitored by agencies implementing them. For example the Police will monitor the number of Police interventions with schools that result from concerns around young people carrying knives.
