Anti-social behaviour


Anti-social behaviour

Anti-Social Behaviour occurs when "a person has acted in a manner that caused or was likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household as him/herself" (Crime and Disorder Act 1998) It may be noise nuisance, verbal abuse, criminal damage or other forms of harassment.

Sussex Police has appointed Alison Puddefoot as its Anti-Social Behaviour Co-ordinator for Rother to take forward the Safer Rother Partnership's work to address anti-social behaviour. She works with housing associations, Sussex Police, Rother District Council and a wide range of other organisations, plus residents and members of the public, to tackle the problems caused by a small number of people. People who have become the subject of an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) or have agreed to an Acceptable Behaviour Contract (ABC) have restrictions placed on their activities. This has had a considerable impact on improving the quality of life for a large number of residents.
