On 5 July 2021, we introduced the pilot for Knife Crime Prevention Orders (KCPOs) across the Metropolitan Police area.

The pilot is still ongoing and is due to finish at the end of March 2023.

There will be an evaluation of the pilot and it will allow us to judge the effectiveness of the orders before any decision is taken about whether to roll out the orders nationally. A report following the pilot must also be laid before Parliament before Knife Crime Prevention Orders can be introduced across England and Wales. The report will include the numbers of KCPOs granted during the course of the pilot.
