Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014


10.The Coalition: Our Programme for Government outlined a commitment to reform the powers available to deal with anti-social behaviour. Specifically it said:

We will introduce effective measures to tackle anti-social behaviour and low-level crime.

11.In response to this, a consultation document was published in February 2011.(1) The consultation outlined proposals to streamline radically the current range of powers available to tackle anti-social behaviour. In particular, the consultation sought views on the replacement of the current tools for tackling anti-social behaviour with a new suite of powers: the criminal behaviour order; the crime prevention injunction; the community protection order; the direction power; and the community trigger.
