Dealing with anti-social behaviour and low-level crime is primarily a matter for police forces and their local partners. Police and crime commissioners will hold chief constables to account for the way they tackle local crime and policing priorities, including those related to homelessness where that is an issue. The Government are also reforming the powers available to deal with anti-social behaviour, giving front-line professionals faster, more effective means of protecting victims and communities.
