Anti-social behaviour


Anti-social behaviour hurts everybody involved. We believe it must be stopped early, before too much damage has been done.

Because of that, we rely on early interventions, including police visits and warning letters, as these can nip many problems in the bud.

Police have the many tools at their disposal, including:

  • warning letters and interviews, contracts and agreements
  • fixed penalty notices and penalty notices for disorder
  • parenting orders
  • individual support orders
  • noise abatement notices
  • injunctions
  • dispersal powers
  • anti-social behaviour orders
  •  ‘crack house’ closure orders and premises closure orders
  • possession proceedings
  • arrest and jail sentences
