The Public Safety Foundation


The Independent reports on hundreds of repeat knife offenders being spared jail despite ‘two strikes’ crackdown and carry comment from our Founder:

Mr Geoghegan founded the Public Safety Foundation after being a special adviser on justice and home affairs to Downing Street and a police inspector at Thames Valley Police.

He said: “Any weakening of the already lax punishments for those caught carrying knives, machetes, and other illegal weaponry on our streets will serve only to make our towns and cities less safe.

“Carrying an illegal weapon on the street is never acceptable, and to be caught doing so repeatedly is an all-too-common occurrence. It’s vital that those who are caught face tough consequences including prison sentences.”

Mr Geoghegan added that political parties should commit to expanding prison capacity to send an “unambiguous message” to offenders.
