Alongside Victim Care Merseyside, the Police Commissioner supports victims through the use of anti-social behaviour powers.

As part of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, new powers were introduced which shape the way the police, local authorities, health partners and social housing providers respond to anti-social behaviour (ASB).

The reforms are designed to empower victims of ASB and give them a say on how perpetrators are punished. Please use the links below to find out more about these key new powers:

  • Community Trigger - a case review for victims of ASB and hate crime if they are unsatisfied with how their case has been handled.
  • Community Remedy - gives victims a say in the out-of-court punishment of perpetrators for low-level crime and anti-social behaviour by giving them the opportunity to choose an action from a list of actions compiled following a consultation held by the Commissioner.

Jane wants your views on policing funding today...

The Police Commissioner has to set the police budget soon.

She wants your views on  if you would be willing to contribute an extra 19p a week in your council tax  to enable the Chief Constable to recruit 160 new police officers next year, as well help balance the budget and protect jobs?

Without the extra funding the Commissioner will have to reduce the budget, the recruitment of new officers can’t
go ahead and the Chief Constable will be required to cut back on the service again.
