Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire, Alan Hardwick, has launched a public consultation on new powers which will help tackle low-level anti-social behaviour.
The new Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 has introduced a ‘Community Remedy Document’ designed to offer victims a say in how they feel low-level crime and anti-social behaviour should be dealt with.
The consultation gives members of the public a chance to provide their views on what options should be included in the document.
PCC Alan Harwick said: “As the Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire, victims are a key focus of my work. The new powers brought in under the Anti-social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014 will provide more effective methods for police to tackle anti-social behaviour and get the best possible outcomes for victims.
“This consultation provides an opportunity for the Lincolnshire public to have a say on what measures they feel are most appropriate in tackling low level anti-social behaviour and crime, allowing them to be truly involved in the process.”
The consultation will be open until Tuesday August 26.
