Reports of violence, stabbings and murders have hit the headlines over the past 12 months with daily occurrences in London. But how widespread is violent crime, why is it growing and who are the victims?

The vast majority of people will not be a victim of violent crime. In England and Wales, four in five people did not experience crime in 2017 and overall crime has been steadily decreasing since 1995.

Although people are experiencing less crime, high-harm incidents, including offences involving knives and firearms, are on the rise. In the year ending in March 2018 police recorded a 16% increase in offenses involving a knife or a sharp instrument, totalling over 40,000 offenses, the highest number since 2011. While the rise of gun crime has slowed, with a 2% increase in the same period, serious firearm offenses increased significantly, and the number of homicides recorded by the police showed a fourth consecutive rise, increasing by 12%. While these crimes remain rare, they attract a lot of media attention.

The landscape of violent crime in Britain is changing. Dramatic increases in knife crime in the home counties, rising by an average of 44.8% over the past eight years, suggest that county lines drug gangs are spreading violent crime beyond London. There has also been an increase in under-16s involved in serious incidents, with figures of under-16s treated in hospital for stab wounds doubling in the last 5 years. Meanwhile, although gangs remain a prominent proportion of violent crime, police figures suggest the rate of gang-related violent crime is decreasing while overall violent crime rises.

The Government is determined to do all it can to break the deadly cycle of violence that devastates the lives of individuals, families and communities. The ‘Serious Violence Strategy’ launched on 9th April 2018 sets out how we will respond to serious violence. Funding of £40 million has been made to boost local ‘open access’ youth provision in six targeted disadvantaged areas in England, followed by a further £9.8 million in February 2019.

This conference brings together the key stakeholders involved in tackling gang, violence and weapon crime in the UK. We will be looking at tackling county lines and misuse of drugs, early intervention and prevention, supporting communities and partnerships, and an effective law enforcement and criminal justice response.

With keynotes from senior bodies and case study examples of best practice, attendees will get the latest information and be able to benchmark and gain new insights and strategies.
