What is Anti-Social Behavior?
Anti-social behaviour ranges from nuisance to criminal activity. It impacts on people's quality of life and affects all neighbourhoods. Examples include:
- unruly and drunken behaviour
- street drinking
- threatening and abusive language in a public place
- dog fouling
- aggressive begging
- drug dealing or persistent criminal behaviour
- racial harassment
- homophobic harassment
- noise nuisance
What are we going to do about it?
The aim of the Safer Portsmouth Partnership is to make residents feel their neighbourhood is a safe place to live and visit. Reducing anti-social behavior has been identified as a priority for the residents of Portsmouth.
The partnership will continue to work together to reduce instances of anti-social behaviour (ASB) by intervening early, diverting people away from antisocial activity, and by enforcing the law where this is appropriate.
