Holyrood is set to receive £8million as part of a scheme to tackle the knife crime crisis.
Chancellor Philip Hammond announced £80million of new cash for the Home Office to spend on overtime and specialist units in his spring statement.
The additional funding means the Scottish Government will receive around £8million in Barnett consequentials over the next year.
Official statistics show that there were 285 homicides where the method of killing was by a knife or sharp instrument in the year to March 2018.
This was the highest number since the Home Office’s Homicide Index began in 1946.
The Press and Journal revealed last year that 26 youngsters in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray were caught with weapons ranging from knives, razor blades and scissors in 2017/18.
The detection rates for the police’s north-east division equalled those in the Highlands, Lothians and Greater Glasgow totals combined.
And official figures published by the Scottish Court and Tribunal Service (SCTS) on Tuesday revealed that a total of 462 knives and other “pointed” potential weapons were found by security staff at buildings in Aberdeen, Elgin, Inverness and Peterhead over the last three years.
