Knife arches are to be installed in some Enfield secondary schools in a new police offensive on gangs and knife crime.
Chief superintendent Dave Tucker, the borough’s leading police officer, said “I have been to a number of knife arches at schools and I have never got the impression from students that trust has been damaged.
They have always been very open to being searched and it gives us the chance to talk to them about the issue. For us it’s all about keeping people safe.”
