New worker to support anti-social behaviour victims in Hertfordshire
Victims of anti-social behaviour (ASB) are to get extra support from Hertfordshire’s Beacon centre.
A new case manager to specialise in helping those affected by ASB has been hired as part of a one-year pilot instigated by the county’s police and crime commissioner, David Lloyd.
He said: “We're always looking at innovative ways of tackling crime and best helping those who are victims of crime.
“Beacon already offers one of the most comprehensive support systems in the country and this new ASB worker will reinforce their scope of work even further.
“They will work closely with our most vulnerable victims to make a real difference to their lives. They will also work with police, councils and housing associations to make changes to reduce the occurrence of anti-social behaviour.”
The new service comes just a month after another pilot scheme to support more victims of domestic violence.
