Antisocial behaviour tops police meeting agenda

Dawn Primarolo discusses residents' concerns with local police

On Friday 25 June, Dawn Primarolo met with local police officers to learn more about how Labour's efforts to tackle antisocial behaviour are being developed locally.

"Reducing the problem of antisocial behaviour is a top priority for my constituents, many of whom find the conduct of a small minority extremely distressing. On a national level, Labour is giving police the extra resources and new powers they need. This must be supported by action on the ground, which is why I am pleased at the priority the problem is being given locally", Dawn explains.

A key component of the police response is a new database that records antisocial behaviour by perpetrator, systematically listing each incident for the first time. Based on the very best of systems nationwide, it allows the police to work with other agencies to make decisions about perpetrators on a case-by-case basis, ensuring that appropriate action is taken at the right time. It will also draw together a picture of antisocial behaviour in Bristol, identifying trends and hotspots, which will help the police to deploy their resources more effectively.

"This system will help the police to respond more effectively to residents' concerns about antisocial behaviour. In return, they are asking members of the public to help them by reporting any problems - either by phoning the main number on 01275 818181 or by calling the local district station", Dawn concludes.
