Chief Officers and Police and Crime Commissioners are responsible for local operational decisions including allocating appropriate resources to tackle anti-social behaviour. The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 provides the police with a wide range of powers to tackle all forms of anti-social behaviour effectively. We have therefore not made any specific assessment of the changes on police officer numbers to respond to anti-social behaviour.
