Anti-Social Behaviour The role of the local authorities City of Westminster Ainslie OConnor Deputy Head of Crime & Disorder Reduction
When residents experience anti- social behaviour it can be day in, day out...
There is drug taking, drug dealing, prostitution, noise, arguments between kerb crawlers, pimps and shouting that happens on our streets on a daily basis. When I go out for a walk or jog on some mornings I see used condoms, tissues and occasionally needles. I feel our 16 year old could be accosted by regular prostitutes who have become very territorial about their patch.
My neighbours door is used as a lavatory for prostitutes and drug dealers, it stinks of urine and faeces. Can you just imagine cleaning that up every morning? This behaviour is having a detrimental effect on our lives.
