More than three million incidents of anti social behaviour are still recorded each year in the UK, with many more likely to go unreported. And as many recent tragic cases have shown, it's often the most vulnerable who at the greatest risk of residential vandalism, aggravated burglaries and unprovoked attacks. Often people feel intimidated and threatened at the place where they should feel most secure.
With the recent law introduced in Novemeber 2012, local councils are, now, virtually powerless in tackling anti social behaviour ( The Observer, Sunday 4 Nov 2012 ). Direct surveillance will no longer be authorised for the so-called minor offences, such as noisy neighbours, drukenness and verbal abuse. These so-called petty crimes could be significally reduced if only the local authorities were more proactive.
Petty crimes scare home buyers and investors away; increase insurance premiums; and they are not usually committed by petty criminals. Police and local authorities, usually, don't have the time and resources to protect and act on behalf of the victim.
