What are we doing to tackle anti-social
St.Helens Council, Merseyside Police and Community Safety
Partners recognise that anti-social behaviour, disorder, drug
misuse and environmental crime are high on the list of your
priorities for action. We understand that if you become a victim of
anti-social behaviour it can have a devastating effect on your
quality of life.
We are continuing to work with our partners to deliver on our ASB
pledge and will support our local Neighbourhood Policing Teams
to identify, tackle and eradicate ASB.
We use a wide range of ASB legislation and tools to help tackle
perpetrators and run a number of annual campaigns to tackle
seasonal rises in anti-social behaviour:
- Spring (SpringWatch) to tackle expected rises in asb, off-road
vehicle nuisance and neighbour nuisance.
- Summer (Safespace) to reduce asb in parks and open spaces
- Autumn (Be the Good Guy) to reduce asb and nuisance fires in
the lead-up to Halloween and Bonfire night.

We will always tackle anti-social behaviour professionally
