Foster R (2014) Knife Crime Interventions: 'What works?'. Scottish Government. Glasgow: Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research.
In recent years, there has been growing concern over knife carrying and associated knife crime, in Scotland and elsewhere. Despite this increased concern, there is a lack of robust, shared knowledge on ‘what works’ in reducing knife carrying and knife crime. In light of this information dearth, a report was commissioned by the Scottish Government from the SCCJR.
