Anti-Social Behaviour Victims To Have Their Say On Punishments

Friday July 4 2014


South Yorkshire Police South Yorkshire Police


VICTIMS of anti-social behaviour will have a say on what should happen to perpetrators as part of a raft of new powers being brought in.

The new rules come in to force in October in a bid to streamline and simplify the powers and tools for tackling anti-social behaviour so "faster, more flexible approaches" can be taken.

Coun Jenny Platts outlined the plans, who explained how the act will replace behavioural orders and create new duties to support victims and witnesses.

It means some offences will be dealt out of court using 'community remedies'. These will give victims and witnesses a say, and some element of control, in how a perpetrator should be punished.

Are you in favour? Have your say below.

And then .... can I go to their house and set their conifers alight (of whatever they have of same value to burn) three weeks on the trot like they did to me- would be good justice, see how they like the same done to them!!

I think this is a good idea. When someone just feels like destroying someone elses proprty just for the hell of it, its justice that they should have to explain themselves to the victim. The punishment should as near as possible match the crime commited. I for one,would enjoy jumping on the idiots garage roof and then dropping on to thier car and then smearing oil everywhere. I know it was kids,in this instance thier parents should pay for my expenses. Then give them a good old slap round the head every hour upto the time it took me to clean the stuff up. Little idiots.
