Home Office Report 53: An assessment of the Tackling Knives and Serious Youth Violence Action Programme (TKAP) – Phase ll

The Tackling Knives and Serious Youth Violence Action Programme (TKAP) ran from April 2009 to March 2010 and aimed to reduce all serious violence involving 13- to 24-year-olds using a range of enforcement, education and prevention initiatives in 16 police force areas. 

The findings presented in Home Office Research Report 53 provide encouraging evidence that serious violence involving 13- to 24-year-olds declined across the country between 2007/08 and 2009/10. However, given that the reductions were not specific to or consistently greater in the TKAP areas (compared with the non-TKAP areas), and taking into account various methodological limitations described in the report, it is not possible to directly attribute reductions in the TKAP areas during Phase II to TKAP activities.
