Tackling anti-social behaviour: forty-fourth report of session 2006-07, report, together with formal minutes, oral and written evidence

Front Cover
Responding to reports of anti-social behaviour in England and Wales costs government agencies around 3.4 billion a year, with additional indirect costs to communities and businesses and emotional cost to victims. Anti-social behaviour orders were first introduced in the mid 1990s and since then more powers have been added, in a piecemeal fashion. There are a variety of ways of tackling incidents and comparable local areas use different approaches. There has however been no comparative evaluation of the use and success of different measures. On the basis of a report by the National Audit Office the Committee examined how anti-social behaviour is being tackled. It also used the opportunity to question the Home Office on the recently disclosed backlog of 27,500 notifications of convictions of British citizens abroad, which was passed to the Association of Chief Police Officers for entry onto the Police National Computer system.
