Anti-social Behaviour: Building a Strong Foundation

12th November 2019 RIAMS

In the latest blog by Janine Green, ‘ASB: Building a Strong Foundation’, some key challenges are identified for organisations to consider when tackling ASB cases.

It is vital that practitioners have a clear understanding of ASB and civil law knowledge when tackling ASB issues. A strong foundation allows for quick and decisive actions helping practitioners utilise the most effective and appropriate tools for the case in hand, in turn, costing the least amount of money.

When speaking at the Frontline Resolution conference, Janine spoke to an audience comprising of ASB, Housing and police officers, and identified the following challenges that must be considered to be truly effective in tackling ASB issues.

Not understanding what ASB is: An organisation without a clear stance on whether something is ASB will create challenges for themselves.
Approaching neighbour disputes: These types of disputes take time, costing a considerable amount of money and so an organisation must be firm about their approach to them.
Not understanding the civil standard of proof in practice: In many cases, there is enough evidence to take action but the officer makes the contrary decision, not recognising that the threshold has been met.
Missing windows of opportunity: This may be because the officer does not realise that they have enough evidence to take action or does not recognise that the incident satisfies the threshold for taking urgent legal action.
