A police-led youth violence prevention programme which diverts young people away from knife crime, gangs and county lines across Watford, Three Rivers and Hertsmere has entered its fifth year.

First launched in 2019 the anti-violence project – supported by partners – has grown year on year and the team have announced three new anti-violence awareness events for the first quarter of 2024.

Anti-violence campaigner Alison Cope will share the hard-hitting story about her late son Joshua with an audience of parents, families, young people over the age of 10 – as well as education and care professionals – at the free events across Hertsmere, Three Rivers, and Watford.

Those attending will learn about the true impact of knife crime, the signs to look out for and how to help the young people in their lives make positive choices.

Alison will also be joined by Russell Symons of Impressionable Minds, who will deliver an input on bullying, extremism, drugs, county lines, and alcohol awareness.
