Gloria De Piero MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Office Minister, in response to Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary report into the responses provided by police forces to reports of anti-social behaviour and victim satisfaction, said:
“These are exceptionally worrying figures. Anti-social behaviour is a blight on too many lives and needs to be treated with the seriousness it deserves. We back a strong and swift response to anti-social behaviour and that victims should get a response within 24 hours.
“However this Government is so out of touch it is weakening powers police have to tackle anti-social behaviour and taking over 16,000 police officers off our streets. This is no way to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.”
