What we plan to do

  • Reduce anti-social behaviour and re-offending through partnership working and the provision of high quality casework services.
  • Respond to the Anti-Social Behaviour Act (which is expected to be passed towards the end of 2014/15).  This will rationalise the range of existing tools and powers to tackle ASB and is aimed at bringing swifter justice for victims with a better assessment of risk and harm. Partnership work across Brighton & Hove will ensure that the use of new tools and powers and good practice is embedded city-wide.
  • Ensure community concerns regarding anti-social behaviour are identified and addressed.
  • Reduce the harm caused to victims and witnesses of anti-social behaviour and identify and protect vulnerable individuals.
  • Achieve behaviour change for perpetrators through case management.  To involve a range of agencies, including the youth offending service, the Integrated Team for Families, mental health services and adult social care.
  • Reduce anti-social behaviour by young people and prevent first time entrants into the youth justice system, including through the work of the Integrated Team for Families and the Stronger Families, Stronger Communities initiative.
