Keeping young people safe from crime


Anti-social behaviour (ASB) causes harassment, alarm or distress to a member or members of the public.

The nature of ASB can include a wide range of behaviours, many of which can cause serious harm to victims and communities and increase their perception of victimisation.

This includes vandalism, public drunkenness, aggressive begging, irresponsible dog ownership, and noisy or abusive behaviour towards neighbours.


Supported by Deputy Mayor of Greater Manchester, Bev Hughes, a number of partnership programmes are in place, involving Greater Manchester Police, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, Greater Manchester Combined Authority, and other Greater Manchester organisations to protect young people in Greater Manchester.
