IPRT was invited by the Joint Committee on Justice to make a written submission on the topic of ‘Anti-Social Behaviour’. IPRT welcomes the decision of the Joint Committee on Justice to examine the issue of Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) in detail, and appreciates the opportunity to make a submission.
In our submission, IPRT highlights strategies that do not work to deter anti-social behaviour, as well as pointing to evidence on what has been shown to work. In particular, approaches that focus on addressing the underlying causes of ASB and offending are more effective in reducing such behaviours.
