About This Project

Sometimes contentious issues can be tough to debate and hear everyone’s opinions, especially a passion-packed topic such as knife crime.

Soundbite Audience Response was delighted to work with the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) in central London, attended by around 150 delegates including the Police, youth workers, probation officers, parents, victims of crime and social services.

Attended by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, the audience were quizzed on topics such as who has the main responsibility tackle knife crime, what would influence a young person to carry a knife and what key services would be best placed to help prevent people from being in possession of a knife.

Using a live feedback format, as each question was asked, the results were submitted via our simple to use keypads, and the instant on-screen feedback allowed the delegates to participate in a discussion around how they had all voted.

Delegates were also asked about their role, which allowed for the submission of questions broken down by demographic groups to provide later analysis by the Mayor’s Office.
