Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014: Anti-social behaviour powers Statutory guidance for frontline professionals

The Home Office published statutory guidance in July 2014 to support the effective use of new powers to tackle anti-social behaviour that were introduced through the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

This guidance has been updated in the light of experience since the new powers were introduced. The changes will help to ensure that there is a greater focus on the impact of anti-social behaviour on victims and on their needs, ensuring that the relevant legal tests are met before the powers are used, underlining the importance of ensuring that the use of the powers are focused on specific behaviour that is antisocial or causing nuisance, and ensuring that the issues of local consultation, accountability and transparency are addressed. The guide is intended to assist those frontline professionals – the police, local councils and social landlords – who are able to make use of the powers to respond to instances of anti-social behaviour in their local areas.
