The Government has supported local authorities and others in dealing with the consequences of anti-social behaviour by giving them more effective powers under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. These new powers are simpler and more flexible than the ones they have replaced to allow

agencies to act quickly and better protect the public. We have also published statutory guidance for frontline professionals who use the new powers and we continue to work with them to ensure they put victims at the heart of their response to anti-social behaviour.
