Detail

Home Office Research Report 51 explores how interventions for anti-social behaviour (ASB) are used in some local areas and the nature of ASB by adults.

The report brings together a quantitative strand exploring the use of interventions and a qualitative approach exploring the context in which ASB interventions are made, focussing on persistent adult perpetrators.

The study provides information on the interventions used and about those who receive interventions for ASB.  It also highlights issues with data collection and sharing between agencies.

Detailed consideration of cases of persistent ASB by adults highlights the complex needs of many of the perpetrators and the challenges faced by practitioners in dealing with these types of ASB.
