What is Anti-Social Behaviour?
According to the Crime and Disorder Act of 1998, “anti-social behaviour” is one which results in or may result in harassment, alarm or distress to one or more people who are not in the same household as the perpetrator. Anti-social behaviour can take the forms of:-
- Abusive or intimidating language. Especially when directed towards minorities.
- Excessive noise, especially during the nights.
- Littering the streets.
- In appropriate behaviour in streets under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- Dealing in drugs and the resulting problems.
According to Landlord and Tenant’s Solicitors, the above mentioned issues directly affect everyone in the community whether young or old. As a result of which they cannot be considered as Generational Issues. They have to be dealt in a cooperative manner.
