A harm centred approach to ASB

I was recently asked to speak at an RHE Global webinar, on the subject of ASB. As part of the early planning for the event, I met with the other speakers to discuss the topics that we would all be covering.

Janine Green ASB Chats….Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE)

Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE) is something that front-line officers may encounter and it is therefore very important that officers are trained to recognise it, handle it sensitively and ensure that the right people and agencies are made aware. I was thrilled to welcome Nikki Holmes, a safeguarding expert, onto the latest episode and she provides […]

The Closure Order in Practice

I sincerely believe that the Closure Order is one of the more powerful and effective tools in the ASB toolkit. At this point, I hope you’re nodding along with me emphatically. If you’re not, can I be so bold as to suggest that perhaps your local arrangements are not working as well for you as […]

The Community Protection Notice: a backdoor injunction?

The recent case of Sanderson -v- Staffordshire Moorlands has brought conversation about the use of the Community Protection Notice (CPN) to the fore again. It is fair to say that the CPN has been one of the tools within the ASB, Crime and Policing Act 2014 (ASB Act) that has attracted the most discussion. The […]

Janine Green ASB Chats……….. Covid-19 and ASB

http://traffic.libsyn.com/janinegreenasb/ringr_109965_109430.mono_2.mp3 The Covid-19 pandemic has undoubtedly changed the way we manage cases of ASB; we have had to quickly adapt our case management approach in order to deliver a service remotely, as well as facing the challenge of having different types of ASB reported, such as concerns about people refusing to follow self-distancing rules.
