Anti-social Behaviour

Anti-social behaviour can sometimes seem harmless as the victims may be not always be obvious. But that doesn’t mean it is any less serious!

Anti-social behaviour comes in many forms and can have a devastating affect on peoples’ lives. Incidents of anti-social behaviour can range from something that is a mild annoyance to something that causes real fear and insecurity.

The legal bit: If you commit an act of anti-social behaviour, you could end up getting a Civil Injuction, a Criminal Behaviour Order or an Acceptable Behaviour Contract. All of these impose restrictions on entering certain areas in the community and even which friends/ acquaintances you can associate with.
