On Monday, the Prime Minister denied there is a link between falling police numbers and the growing levels of knife crime.
The meeting will include police chiefs from areas most affected by knife crime.
"Cuts to the police, rising poverty, the police and Home Office recognise the link even if the prime minister doesn't".
"I am really staggered beyond belief that the leader of this country has got her head so firmly stuck in the sand that she is not seeing the reality in front of her".
"What matters is how we ensure that police are responding to these criminal acts when they take place, that people are brought to justice", she said.
"And I'm afraid that's been demonstrated year after year, back when the prime minister was home secretary". The very next evening, Makki, a pupil at Manchester Grammar School, was stabbed in a wealthy Greater Manchester village.
His death follows the fatal stabbing of 17-year-old Jodie Chesney in an east London park on Friday night in what her family branded a "totally random and unprovoked attack".
"Obviously starting with my own, but also the work, and we've heard in this house of education, of health and also of communities and local governance".Читайте также: Dragon capsule heads for space station
The strategy, published past year, focuses on steering young people away from a life of crime, while continuing to promote a strong law enforcement response, it added.
Dave Thompson, the chief constable of the West Midlands, told the Guardian that the home secretary has accepted the case from police chiefs that money was important and that more was needed.
"But what also matters is that as a government we look at the issues that underpin, that underline this use of knives".
"Also, when it comes to youth services, over the last eight years dozens and dozens of youth centres have closed down, hundreds of youth workers have lost their jobs, thousands of young people who used to have youth centres to go to (now) haven't".
She called for anyone with information into the attack on her youngest granddaughter to contact the police. "We need to have a effect", he said.
MET POLICE Commissioner Cressida Dick has said that army intervention on the streets of London should not be "excluded" as an option to combat knife crime spreading across the country.
Mr Allen said: "We see too many weak gateways or disclaimers, from online retailers specifically, where the customer self-declares they are 18 without having to submit any proof - this is a wholly inadequate solution and provides an easy route for children to obtain knives against very limited checks".
Asked if she agreed with the statement, Ms Dick said: "I think anybody who is not seriously mentally ill, seriously addicted, who is seeking "recreational" drugs, particularly class A drugs, yes, I think that is a good way to put it, I do".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
