Detail

Home Office Research Report 21 explores local variations in the use of tools and powers and builds a picture of how interventions are being used in local areas. The research design used both quantitative and qualitative approaches.

This study has shown that there were variations in the use of tools and powers, mainly reflecting differences between areas in the levels and types of antisocial behaviour (ASB) experienced. 

However, most areas had a generally similar way of working that can be characterised as a tiered approach. The practitioners valued Government support, particularly in addressing issues of information sharing and disseminating good practice, but they strongly supported the flexibility to pursue locally-determined agendas on ASB.
