Cornerstone on Anti-Social Behaviour: The New Law

By Kuljit Bhogal

This book is a practical guide to the new toolkit introduced by the UK's Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime, and Policing Act 2014. It clearly explains, through the use UK of case studies, practical examples, and tactical advice how the new tools operate and how they may be used to best effect. The book covers each aspect of the new anti-social behaviour toolkit. It explains what the new powers are, how they differ from the old, and how they can be applied in practice. It sets out the existing case law relating to ASBOs and ASBIs and considers the extent to which this will be relevant to the new powers. Each chapter contains helpful textboxes dealing with FAQs and worked examples. There are sections on human rights, vulnerable defendants, and proportionality defenses, as well as advice on evidence. The book is supplemented by a series of appendices which include the relevant UK statutory materials and the Home Office Guidance for Frontline Professionals. There are useful precedents and a list of specimen prohibitions and positive requirements for common problems. The book will be an essential source of reference for anyone involved in tackling anti-social behaviour. *** "This is an invaluable toolkit. It has clear and concise guidance, good precedents and a useful review not only the new act but also of how it overlaps with and enhances existing legislation." -- The Law Society Gazette
