BARNSLEY Council has revised its anti-social behaviour policy and introduced a number of new enforcement powers.

Staff will now respond to anti-social behaviour based on the impact that it is having on local people - rather than the offence itself.

Under new policy the council and its partners will support victims and witnesses by providing dedicated help from an officer.

Anti-social behaviour could range from playing music too loud, dumping rubbish, threatening or swearing at neighbours to criminal damage, assault, or racist abuse.
