More than 190 knives have been handed in during a two-week amnesty in a Suffolk town.
Two knife amnesty bins were placed outside the police station in Sudbury and the Stevenson Centre in nearby Great Cornard.
During the amnesty police said they had collected 195 knives from the bins, 18 of which were weapons rather than standard kitchen or work knives.
The knife amnesty was just one strand of a crime awareness campaign.
During the campaign, police visited schools and worked with licensees to ensure knives were not taken onto licensed premises.
Metal detecting wands were used on licensed premises at the weekend, and police said they would continue to use them to search people they believe to be carrying knives illegally.
