The Government finally gets it .... today's announcement by the Home Secretary Sajid Javid’s that knife crime needs to be treated like a disease is something both my deputy @glosdeputypcc and I have been talking about for over 2 years.

Emphasising the need for a ‘public health’ approach to youth violence, Mr. Javid is calling for knife crime to be treated “like a disease”. Now it needs the financial backing and not just warm words.
