Communities to 'trigger' action on antisocial behaviour

PUBLISHED November 16, 2005

Ordinary people will have a greater say on how crime and antisocial behaviour is dealt with by police, Home Office minister Hazel Blears announced today.

Moves to allow local communities to "trigger" local action by police and councils to tackle the most persistent problems in their areas were announced today as part of the government's drive to make people feel safer in their own neighbourhoods.
