The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 gives the police and their local partners a range of flexible powers to enable them to respond quickly and efficiently to different forms of anti-social behaviour.

These powers give the police and other local agencies the powers they need to protect victims and to stop anti-social behaviour in public which can spoil the community’s quality of life.
