The Mayor of West Yorkshire, Tracy Brabin, has secured funding for a new pilot to tackle anti-social behaviour (ASB) across the region. While the new initiative prepares to launch, people are being urged to have their say.
A survey has opened asking members of the public to feedback their experiences of ASB and share how they would like to see those responsible make amends.
The trial will see a range of tailored services for adults and children trialled to benefit victims.
This includes completing unpaid work, repairing damage caused by their actions, and the option of restorative justice, where the victim can communicate with the person responsible for the crime.
Mayor Brabin, said: “We are determined to make West Yorkshire a safer place to work, live and raise a family, so we’re tackling the issues that really matter to people.
“Anti-social behaviour can plague communities. This new pilot aims to prevent it by working with offenders to understand and address the root causes.
“It is vital that we listen to our communities, so we want to hear from as many people as possible, who can share their experiences and help inform this important work.”
