Anti-Social Behaviour Guidance Update
Government updates anti-social behaviour guidance
Strengthened guidance around anti-social behaviour powers for local agencies (including councils) has been recently published by the Home Office.
The guidance relates to the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, which provides police and councils with a range of tools and powers to respond quickly to anti-social behaviour (ASB) and ensure victims have a say in the way that complaints are dealt with.
A key part of this is the Anti-Social Behaviour Case Review (also known as the Community Trigger), which gives victims of persistent anti-social behaviour the ability to demand a formal case review where the local threshold is met.
