The Government recognises the important part that boxing and other diversionary activities can play in preventing young people getting involved in crime and antisocial behaviour. However, the Department does not provide advice on the provision of boxing as an intervention. Police and Crime Commissioners, police forces and their partner agencies are best placed to consider and decide how to prevent crime and antisocial behaviour at local level.
