Moves to tackle anti-social behaviour welcomed (25 Aug 2015)

Moves to tackle anti-social behaviour in Bradford and also help those in need get the help they require have been welcomed by the Office of the West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Mark Burns-Williamson.

Anti-social behaviour can have a very negative impact on people's quality of life and reducing it across West Yorkshire is a priority in the Police and Crime Commissioner's Police and Crime Plan.

A spokesperson for the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner, said:

"The Police and Crime Commissioner is regularly out and about in the communities of West Yorkshire, speaking to people and listening to what concerns them the most.

"The Safer Communities Fund was launched to help voluntary, community groups, charities and partners to make their communities safer and feel safer and many of the recipients who have benefitted from money help to reduce instances of anti-social behaviour.

"Anti-social behaviour, and the negative impact it has, especially for elderly people, is something that is mentioned time and time again and that is why this office is working hard with partners to reduce it and to continue to improve people's perception as to how it is dealt with.

"There are various powers available to deal appropriately with those involved in anti-social behaviour and it is pleasing to see that police officers and Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) are working hard to deal with it and to help people get the help they need."
