If you’re caught carrying a knife you will receive something called a Criminal Record.

This can affect your whole future.  Especially when it comes to going for that job you have always wanted, because what employer wants someone who has a criminal record?  What employer would want you working for them if you’ve been convicted for carrying a knife?

A lot of young people don’t even think it will affect their future, but it really does.

If an employer has two people applying for the same job – one has a criminal record for carrying a knife and has served time in jail, whereas the other has A levels, qualifications and no criminal record.. who do you think they are going to choose?

Carrying a knife doesn’t just ruin other peoples lives.. it can ruin yours too.
