Reform of anti-social behaviour powers (2014)

The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 (ABCPA 2014) has reformed the tools available for dealing with anti-social behaviour (ASB). The aim was to consolidate remedies and to make the process simpler and more effective. In July 2014 the government issued new statutory guidance 'Reform of anti-social behaviour powers: statutory guidance for frontline professionals’ July 2014. This guidance was updated in August 2019.
