The act will introduce simpler, more effective powers to tackle anti-social behaviour that provide better protection for victims and communities.
The new community trigger and community remedy will empower victims and communities, giving them a greater say in how agencies respond to complaints of anti-social behaviour and in out-of-court sanctions for offenders.
The act will also:
tackle irresponsible dog ownership and the use of illegal firearms by gangs and organised criminal groups
strengthen the protection afforded to the victims of forced marriage and those at risk of sexual harm
enhance the professional capabilities and integrity of the police
amend the port and border security powers in Schedule 7 to the Terrorism Act 2000, to ensure that they strike the right balance between the need to protect public safety and the protection of individual freedoms
amend the Extradition Act 2003 to strengthen public confidence in, and the operational effectiveness of, our extradition arrangements
