Labour launches review of anti-social behaviour policy

SD7109 : Read all about it! by michael elyThe Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper announced a review of the Labour Party's antisocial behaviour policy during a visit to Blackpool on 13 April, amid claims that the coalition is weak on crime.

Cooper hit out at the coalition's proposals to replace ASBOs with civil injunctions saying:
"It's not just the cuts to police officers that worry me, they are also tying the hands of the police and local communities that want to put a stop to antisocial behaviour in their area."
She admitted that Labour's Respect agenda did not eradicate persistent nuisance behaviour in local communities, but said more should be done now to address the problem.
