Questions from Reverend Tina Sampson-Smith




Given the recent spate of violent crime, gun and knife incidents, making the headlines is it not now time to re-evaluate the potential of the Knife Angel with its educational value?




If not, what are your plans for educating youths out of their gang culture.




The Chair stated that the decision regarding the Knife Angel was taken by the Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Community Safety so he would pass the question to him asking that he responds to Reverend Sampson-Smith.  With regard to the question relating to gang culture, he said this will form part of the discussion during Item 8 on the agenda – Update on the work of the South Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit.
