Barbara backs Salford Council’s tough action on anti-social behaviour

Barbara has welcomed the use of ASBOs by Salford City Council in two recent and disturbing cases.

A young boy from Little Hulton convicted of two assaults on other children last summer has been given an ASBO by Salford City Council for 3 years. In an unrelated case, a Pendleton man with a history of criminal behaviour has been given an ASBO for 2 years for threatening a neighbour with violence.

Barbara has welcomed the Council’s tough action:

“I fully support Salford Council’s use of Anti-social Behaviour Orders to tackle harmful and threatening behaviour in our community. The two individuals involved caused a great deal of distress to innocent people in Salford. By using ASBOs, the two perpetrators have been barred from future contact with their victims and from harassing other people in Salford.

“These two cases follow a recent meeting I had with Home Office Minister Alan Campbell to discuss tackling anti-social behaviour in Salford. We already have a good track record locally in tackling anti-social behaviour and there has been a 13% reduction in overall crime but I believe we should always try to do more. Nobody in Salford should live in fear of mindless or violent anti-social behaviour.”
