The Home Office does not record incidents of antisocial behaviour. Any such incidents are usually reported to the police, local authority, landlord or other frontline agency public whose task it is to deal directly with that problem. However, in common with many other Departments—for example the Department for Communities and Local Government and the Ministry of Justice—we do receive representations from members of the public, directly or through their Member of Parliament, about our policies in the field of antisocial behaviour. We received over 2,000 such letters and e-mails in the three years from 2005 to 2007.
