Personal, situational and incidental vulnerabilities to anti-social behaviour harm: a follow-up study

Summary

In 2012 HMIC commissioned academic research to further understand the different types of people suffering anti-social behaviour (ASB), with a view to identifying the potential for adopting differing responses according to the need.

The report, by Dr Helen Innes and Professor Martin Innes of the Universities’ Police Science Institute at Cardiff University, provides information on how forces can identify the ASB victim profile in their area in a way that allows them to make response decisions based on evidence.

This study makes a significant contribution to the evidence base around the impact of ASB on victims and ‘what works’ in terms of police responses to the problem.
