Anti Social Behaviour
What is Anti Social Behaviour?
Anti-social behaviour is "acting in a manner that caused or was likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household as the complainant".
Anti-social behaviour is annoying, and could lead to 'more serious' criminal activity.
Some examples are:
- Nuisance neighbours
- Yobbish behaviour and intimidating groups taking over public spaces
- Vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting
- Dealing and buying drugs on the street
- Dumping rubbish and abandoning cars
- Anti-social drinking
- Misuse of fireworks
- Reckless driving including driving of mini-motorbikes
Anti-social behaviour cases fall into three areas:
