These documents form the Crime section of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill.
The Bill contains a number of measures to tackle specific crime issues. Measures to tackle dangerous dogs, illegal firearms and forced marriage are contained in parts 7 to 9 of the Bill.
Part 7 – Dangerous dogs
The proposals in the Bill are part of a wider package of measures to reduce dog attacks and make owners more responsible for their dogs. These powers sit alongside anti-social behaviour powers in the Bill that can be used to tackle dangerous dogs and irresponsible owners.

Part 8 – Firearms
The Bill targets those who sell or transfer prohibited weapons or ammunition through the introduction of a new offence and increased sentencing powers for the courts.
Part 9 – Protection from sexual harm and violence
The UK has some of the toughest powers in the world to deal with sex offenders. The measures in the Bill reform the system of civil orders under the Sexual Offences Act 2003 used to protect children and vulnerable adults from sexual harm, making the powers available more flexible and effective.
Part 10 – Forced marriages
The Bill makes two changes to tackle forced marriage more effectively: criminalising forcing someone to marry and criminalising the breach of Forced Marriage Protection Orders
