This is an important measure which gives victims of persistent ASB the ability to request a formal case review by the relevant bodies where a locally defined threshold is met.</p><p>The 2014 Act requires the relevant bodies in a local government area to publish data on the ASB Case Review. Requiring local areas to provide this information to central Government would place additional burdens on the police, local authorities and other local agencies.</p><p>Use of the ASB Case Review and other ASB powers is kept under review through the Home Office’s Anti-social Behaviour Strategic Board which brings together a range of partners and representatives from key agencies and Government departments.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 (“the 2014 Act”) introduced the anti-social behaviour (ASB) Case Review, also referred to as the ‘Community Trigger’, in order to enhance local accountability. This is an important measure which gives victims of persistent ASB the ability to request a formal case review by the relevant bodies where a locally defined threshold is met.</p><p>The 2014 Act requires the relevant bodies in a local government area to publish data on the ASB Case Review. Requiring local areas to provide this information to central Government would place additional burdens on the police, local authorities and other local agencies.</p><p>Use of the ASB Case Review and other ASB powers is kept under review through the Home Office’s Anti-social Behaviour Strategic Board which brings together a range of partners and representatives from key agencies and Government departments.</p> more like this

We have seen declines in the number of Penalty Notices for Disorder issued for being drunk and disorder-ly, and fewer adults perceive people being drunk or rowdy in their area as a problem than ten years ago.</p><p>We continue to take action to improve local intelligence, establish effective local partnerships and equip police and local authorities with the right powers to take effective action against alcohol-related crime and harms in the night time economy. Current action to tackle alcohol-related harms includes building on our Local Alcohol Action Area programme, considering how to tackle drunk and disorderly passengers at airports, and identifying new work to address alcohol related domestic abuse and sexual violence.</p> more like this

The Home Office will treat a person claiming to be a child as an adult only where their physical appearance and demeanour very strongly suggest they are 25 years of age or over.</p><p>When there is doubt about an individual’s claim to be a child, Home Office policy is to refer them to the relevant local authority to carry out a careful “Merton compliant” age assessment, which must be carried out by two social workers and must adhere to guidelines set out by the Courts. Whilst this assessment is ongoing, the local authority or Health and Social Care Trust looking after the individual remains responsible for their care arrangements and the safeguarding of other children in their care.</p><p>The Home Office keeps its policies and processes under review and we remain committed to striking the right balance between ensuring that children who claim asylum are appropriately supported and maintaining the integrity of the asylum system by preventing adults being treated as children.</p>

We continue to work closely with law enforcement in order to better understand the evolving issue of county lines drug dealing and develop effective responses.</p><p>Through the Serious Violence Strategy published in April 2018, we provided £3.6m to establish the National County Lines Co-ordination Centre, a joint initiative between the National Crime Agency and policing, to enhance the intelligence picture and support cross border efforts to tackle county lines. Since its launch in September 2018, it has carried out three separate weeks of operational intensification leading to over 1600 arrests, over 2100 individuals safeguarded and significant seizures of weapons and drugs.</p><p>The Government made £8.5m of additional funding available from the police transformation fund to support the establishment of the Modern Slavery Police Transformation Unit (MSPTU) in October 2016. The programme supports a bespoke modern slavery intelligence hub, regional analysts and operational coordinators, improved training and dedicated thematic experts to support individual police forces. The Government is continuing to support the programme through an additional £3.1m of funding for the current financial year. During 2019/20 the Programme will aim to support the police services to increase the focus on prevention activity and improving investigations.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Home Office is leading work across government to ensure a robust ap-proach to the illegal misuse of drones.</p><p>This includes developing policy over how counter-measures can be best used to respond to malicious and illegal drone use, and accelerating work with the security community and industry to test and evaluate counter-drone technologies. We are working closely with UK sectors at risk to determine how they can be best protected, reducing the likelihood and impact of malicious incidents.</p><p>To further strengthen our ability to tackle drone misuse, an Unmanned Aircraft Bill is currently being prepared which will give the police enhanced powers to enforce drone-related rules. From 30 November 2019 a registration requirement will also come into force for all operators of drones weighing 250 grams or more, as will a requirement for remote pilots of drones to take a competency test.</p><p>The Department for Transport has also extended the restriction zone around airports where the flying of drones is prohibited. The new zones, which came into force in March this year, cover an airport’s aerodrome traffic zone and 5km extensions from the end of runways. This builds on the government’s changes to the law last year, which made it illegal to fly a drone above 400 feet or within 1 km of an airport.</p>
