Example text

When low-level disorder is addressed, anti-social behaviour is deterred and (most contentiously) serious crime is reduced/prevented. Wilson and Kelling summarise as follows: We suggest that ‘untended’ behaviour ... leads to the breakdown of community controls. A stable neighbourhood of families who care for their homes, mind each other’s children, and confidently frown on unwanted intruders can change, in a few years or even a few months, to an inhospitable and frightening jungle. A piece of property is abandoned, weeds grow up, a window is smashed.

For example, 30 per cent of those living in social housing and 32 per cent of those living in ‘hard pressed’ areas – who are least able to move away or bear the cost of anti-social behaviour – perceived high levels of anti-social behaviour in their area. Similarly, findings show that those individuals from an ethnic minority (26 per cent) and females aged between 16 and 24 (28 per cent) found anti-social behaviour to be a ‘big problem’ for their area (NAO, 2006: 9). ) Age breakdown is an important factor in determining the incidence of anti-social behaviour in relevant areas.
