Our Intro the ASB, Crime and Policing Act 2014 (People and Property) provides an overview of the key tools and powers available to housing providers, local authorities and Police to tackle people and property-based issues. Much more than a section-by-section walkthrough of the legislation, it focusses on practical application, helping learners identify the types of situations where each tool may be suited, case management considerations, legal “must do’s” and best practice.

The perfect complement to our Intro to ASB Case Management Principles course, this session provides an excellent foundation to those new to ASB management, or more experienced officers looking for a refresh and understanding of current best practice.

Essential for any front-line officer (whether working in housing, local authority or policing), as well as line managers seeking to benchmark their service against best practice or learn more to best support their officers, the course specifically explores:

  • The Part 1 ASB Injunction, including the different definitions of ASB and when these apply, the required standard of proof, types of situations where the tool may be suitable, examples of possible conditions which can be included and the case preparation process.
  • The Community Protection Notice, including the types of situations where this tool has been used to resolve harm, the legal test, evidence gathering, pointers for preparing a legally competent warning and notice, and options for dealing with any breaches.
  • The Closure Powers including a focus on the flexibility of the tool, how it can be used to deal with issues of exploitation, the process in practice and gathering evidence in cases where fear from residents may be high.
  • The absolute ground for possession and the 5 circumstances where it can be used. Particular focus will be given to the need for partnership working in order to use this ground to best effect.
  • An overview of the key principles of the Criminal Behaviour Order.
  • The content of the current Statutory Guidance and what officers should be mindful of in practice.
  • A summary of the proposed changes to the ASB toolkit, in light of the Criminal Justice Bill.

Delivered by Sharon Murphy this session is sure to be engaging, thought provoking and, above all else, help you to make a positive impact on residents and communities suffering from harm.
