The Antisocial Behaviour etc.

(Scotland) Act 2004 introduced a wide range of new powers to


enable the police and local authorities to tackle antisocial behaviour head on. It has now been
in force for almost four years and the attached statistics outline use of the Act’s enforcement
measures up to end-March 2008. This is the final collection and presentation of such data in
this form, following the introduction of a new streamlined reporting framework under the
new Concordat between central and local government.

We are currently reviewing the national antisocial behaviour strategy, including key elements
of the Antisocial Behaviour (Scotland) Act 2004, to see where it can be improved. We want
to put more emphasis on prevention and early intervention to nip antisocial behaviour in the
bud early. Enforcement measures have their place but on their own won’t deliver long term
solutions. Therefore, we want to ensure that, in presenting local activity in the future, we
give as much recognition to prevention and intervention work as to enforcement activity.

Consideration will be given to how and what we collect and present in terms of local activity
to tackle antisocial behaviour in the future, as part of the strategy review. We would
welcome practitioner views on this (please email Chrissie Finnigan at
Christine.finnigan@scotland.gsi.gov.uk). We are liaising with COSLA and national officer
associations to ensure that any future data collection and presentation is compatible with the
new Concordat.
