Cornerstone on Anti-social Behaviour
With the introduction of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, victims of anti-social behaviour also now have tools to enable them to insist on a response to a problem where nothing seems to have been done. It sets out the following six tools which came into use from October 2014:
2. Criminal Behaviour Order
3. Dispersal Powers
4. Community Protection Notices and Orders
5. Public Spaces Protection Order
6. Closure of Premises
Since the guidance was revised, there has been confusion within local authorities as to what the changes are, how their powers and orders should be adapted to comply with the new guidance.
Fully updated and providing analysis of the revised guidance with commentary explaining what the changes are and what they mean for those working in this area, the second edition of Cornerstone on Anti-social Behaviour remains the first port of call for every one working in the area of, and carrying out ASB work.
