Snowflake coppers are no longer releasing photos of knives handed in during amnesties — in case they scare the public.

Police station project secures funding
A major project to turn a redundant Sutherland police station into a community hub is set to become a reality following a £405,000 funding injection. Dornoch Area Community Interest Company (DACIC) is celebrating the substantial award from the Scottish Land Fund, which will enable the group to purchase the town’s police station. Police Scotland has already provisionally agreed an asset transfer at a discounted price with contracts due to be completed in November. It is understood to be the first such asset transfer by the service, which has dispensed with a number of rural police stations.
