Anti-Social Behaviour

Police Chiefs and the Local Government Association have defended their actions saying thay take anti-social behaviour seriously after Victims' commisioner Baroness Newlove said thay were downplaying the harm caused by those such crimes.

Baroness Newlove said, "The feedbackfrom victims is that, all too often, they are being persistenly targeted by their perpetrators, and yet persistenly ignored by those with the power to prevent and intervene."

With the number of offences on the rise and the number of charges on the fqall it is clear there is an issue however National Police Chiefs Council Lead for Anti-Social Behaviour, Deputy Assistant Commissoner Laurence Taylor says that, "Forces are under increasing strain as they deal with rising crime, demand that is more complex and a raised terror threat with fewer officers."

A part of the problem is members of the public and how they react to these crimes. Police recommend if you are experiencing problems with anti-social behaviour, or have any concerns about it, or other community safety issues, you should contact your local council or call the non-emergency number, 101.
