Figures show reduction in anti-social behaviour

Have your say

ANTI-SOCIAL behaviour in the area has dropped.

In 2014/15 there were 58,574 reported incidents in Hampshire compared with 61,831 in 2013/14.

The office of Hampshire police and crime commissioner Simon Hayes has said the reduction is due to changes to how incidents are managed and recorded.

The drop is also due to an increased partnership working.

Mr Hayes is due to hold a conference on the subject – a priority in his police and crime plan – at the University of Portsmouth on May 20.

He said: ‘Anti-social behaviour affects all age groups and comes in a variety of forms, including cyber crime.

‘This conference will bring together key stakeholders to look at the wider complexities of ASB across Hampshire and Isle of Wight and how these can be addressed.’
