STAND UP AND BE COUNTED AGAINST ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR IN OUR COMMUNITY

This event will address the issues of Anti-SocialL Behaviour in Greenwich Borough. Anti-SocialL Behaviour provides better protection for victims and communities, the government introduced the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. This provides simpler, more effective powers to tackle anti-social behaviour. The Act also introduced a new discretionary ground for possession; being convicted of a riot related offence anywhere in the UK. A number of new measures to better protect communities from the serious harm caused by anti-social behaviour came into force in October 2014. Which are: The Police Dispersal Power allows the police to disperse anti-social individuals and provide short-term respite to a local community. The power is preventative and allows an officer to deal instantly with someone's behaviour in a particular place and to confiscate related items. The Community Protection Notice enables local authorities and police to stop persistent environmental anti-social behaviour, like graffiti, neighbour noise or rubbish on private land. The Public Spaces Protection Order allows a local council to deal with a particular nuisance or problem that is detrimental to the local community's quality of life by imposing universal conditions on the use of that area. This can be used to tackle issues like dog fouling and restricting the consumption of alcohol. The Closure power which allows the police or local council to close premises where anti-social behaviour has been committed, or was likely to be committed. The new Absolute Ground for Possession which will speed up the possession process in cases where anti-social behaviour or criminality has already been proven by another court.

The Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) is issued by the courts after a person has been convicted for a criminal offence. Under the order, a person who has been convicted would be banned from certain activities or places, and would also be required to address their behaviour, for example by attending a drug treatment programme. A breach could see an adult face up to five years in prison. The sentence and punishment can be varied based on the level of offence.
