Dozens of knives disposed of, two search warrants carried out, several suspects arrested and hundreds of young people educated.
Those are just some of the results following North Yorkshire Police's clampdown on knife crime last week.
The activity was part of Operation Sceptre, a national 'week of action' highlighting police forces' ongoing work tackling crime involving knives.
Throughout the week, officers visited eight schools in Craven, Harrogate, Scarborough and Eastfield, and Selby - talking to an estimated 400 pupils about the risks of carrying a knife.
They also proactively used stop and search powers, resulting in three knife-related arrests, and executed two search warrants linked to the suspected use of knives, resulting in two weapons being recovered.
An operation was run in York city centre, supporting door staff at venues in using 'knife wand' metal detectors to ensure customers couldn't bring weapons into pubs and clubs.
Seven people known to have carried knives in the past were visited by officers to ensure they were not at risk of doing so again.
Temporary knife amnesty bins located at police stations across the force area were well-used by members of the public, resulting in 34 knives being surrendered. A permanent knife amnesty bin remains in place in Harrogate, between Asda car park and the Dragon Road car park. Taking any unused or unwanted knife out of circulation prevents it from ever falling into the wrong hands, helping to keep communities safer.
Detective Superintendent Andrea Kell, of North Yorkshire Police, said: "We've had a great response from members of the public, who continue to provide information about people at risk of carrying knives, and have taken the opportunity to dispose of unwanted knives in an amnesty bin.
"With their support, we can keep North Yorkshire and York safe, and further reduce levels of knife crime in our area.
"Unfortunately, it takes just one knife in the wrong hands to result in a serious injury or even death. So it's important to emphasise that our work - alongside partners - in educating young people, prosecuting knife-related crime and taking weapons off the streets, will not stop.
"If you have information about someone who might be carrying a knife, or want to tell us about an area where knives are used, please phone the police on 101, report it on our website or anonymously via fearless.org or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. If it's an emergency, dial 999."
