In recent years, knife crime has reached record highs, and affected young people most of all.
In this event, an expert panel will explore how to tackle knife crime through a public health approach and community policing, as well as how to tackle the causes of knife crime. They'll also consider why a Labour Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC) was able to reduce knife crime in Nottinghamshire, and discuss what we can learn from this across the Midlands and the rest of Britain. After their talks you'll have the chance to ask questions and share your ideas.
Our speakers will include:
- Paddy Tipping, PCC for Nottinghamshire 2012-2021
- Flo Eshalomi MP, Co-Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Knife Crime
- Unmesh Desai AM, Labour's London Assembly Spokesperson on Police & Crime
- Cllr Jane Ashworth OBE, Labour Group Leader on Stoke-on-Trent City Council
The Fabians' Fringe is happening 5 minutes' walk from the Conference complex, in the Lancing Room on the first floor of the Holiday Inn Brighton Seafront hotel (this is wheelchair-accessible). The venue is outside the ticketed area, which means that this event, and many others in the Fringe, will be free to attend even if you don't have a ticket. We hope to see you there!
