The 19th to 25th July marks the first ever antisocial behaviour (ASB) awareness week.
The national organisations supporting the event include the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), Local Government Association (LGA), National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) and the National Fire Chiefs’ Council (NFCC). The week is hosted by Resolve.
Resolve is a Centre of Excellence solely focused upon community safety and antisocial behaviour (ASB). It emphasises that community safety issues and ASB can be tackled effectively and everyone has a right to feel safe. Campaigning takes place to promote the belief that ASB should be treated as a priority, and not as a low level issue or just as a precursor to serious crime.
The week involves a range of activities, summarised below:
Monday, July 19: ASB Awareness Week Launch event between 10 am – 11.30 am. The Victims Commissioner for England and Wales will be joined by key figures from national and local government and the police to discuss how to deal with the rising challenge of ASB.
