Anti-social behaviour (ASB)

Introduction to anti-social behaviour (ASB)

Anti-social behaviour (ASB) can be a real issue for some communities.

The Crime and Disorder Act (1998) defines ASB as behaving in a manner that 'caused or is likely to cause harassment, alarm and distress to one or more persons not of the same household'. Recognising the impact of the behaviour on the victims and the community, as well as looking at the risk factors that cause such behaviour, is key to tackling the problems.
