Anti social behaviour
Anti social behaviour (ASB) can be a real issue for some communities. It is difficult to define and means many different things to many people.
What is anti social behaviour?
The Anti social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act defines ASB as:
(a) Conduct that has caused, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress to any person;
(b) Conduct capable of causing nuisance or annoyance to a person in relation to that person's occupation of residential premises; or,
(c) Conduct capable of causing housing related nuisance or annoyance to any person.
Recognising the impact of the behaviour on the victims and the community, as well as looking at the risk factors that cause such behaviour, is key to tackling the problems.
ASB can include:
Rowdy/nuisance and inconsiderate (behaviour)
Vehicle related nuisance
Abandoned vehicles (not stolen)
Hoax calls to emergency services
Animal related problems
