Antisocial Behaviour: Crime Prevention
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what assessment he has made of the effect of changes in police officer numbers on the ability of police to respond to anti-social behaviour.

Chief Officers and Police and Crime Commissioners are responsible for local operational decisions including allocating appropriate resources to tackle anti-social behaviour. The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 provides the police with a wide range of powers to tackle all forms of anti-social behaviour effectively. We have therefore not made any specific assessment of the changes on police officer numbers to respond to anti-social behaviour.
