The Government is committed to building safer and stronger communities and on 13 March 2014, the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 received royal assent. The Act will introduce simpler, more effective powers to tackle anti-social behaviour that provide better protection for victims and communities.
The Act will also:
- Tackle irresponsible dog ownership and the use of illegal firearms by gangs and organised criminal groups
- Strengthen the protection afforded to the victims of forced marriage and those at risk of sexual harm
- Enhance the professional capabilities and integrity of the police
- Amend the port and border security powers in Schedule 7 to the Terrorism Act 2000, to ensure that they strike the right balance between the need to protect public safety and the protection of individual freedoms
- Amend the Extradition Act 2003 to strengthen public confidence in, and the operational effectiveness of, our extradition arrangements
The new community trigger and community remedy will empower victims and communities, giving them a greater say in how agencies respond to complaints of anti-social behaviour, and in out-of-court sanctions for offenders.
Everyone has the right to feel safe in their own homes and neighbourhoods. Yet thousands of people around the country are still having their everyday lives blighted by anti-social behaviour and the fear of crime, and as the general election gets closer and closer, tackling crime and anti-social behaviour with the intention of building safer and stronger communities, will increasingly become higher on the agenda of all the main protagonists.
