Antisocial behaviour: consultation on more effective responses
Detail of outcome
This consultation is now closed.
Public and partners were invited to comment online on the propositions in this consultation, which intends to reform the toolkit to tackle antisocial behaviour.
About the consultation
This consultation asked for your opinions on government plans to streamline the toolkit used to tackle antisocial behaviour, so that the police and partners have faster, more flexible tools. These, plus more effective sanctions, will help professionals and, where necessary the courts, stop antisocial behaviour earlier, and better protect victims and communities.
The proposals included:
- repealing the ASBO and other court orders and replacing them with two new tools that bring together restrictions on future behaviour and support to address underlying problems
- ensuring there are powerful incentives on perpetrators to stop behaving antisocially
- bringing together many of the existing tools for dealing with place-specific antisocial behaviour
- bringing together existing police dispersal powers for antisocial behaviour into a single police power
- making the informal and out-of-court tools for dealing with antisocial behaviour more rehabilitative and restorative
- introducing a Community Trigger that gives victims and communities the right to require agencies to deal with persistent antisocial behaviour.
