When a ticket is issued it is an £80 fine or a £40 reduction if the recipient agrees to attend an interactive behavioural seminar run by ISW. Participants attend a one-off intervention session, where they learn about the different types of ASB, how it affects victims, society, emergency services, themselves, families, etc. The course also offers participants an opportunity to explore the reasons for anti-social behaviour, understand their particular offence and offers alternative solutions for them to deal with issues in the future. Also, information and signposting to agencies that are able to help and support people with a range of difficulties in their lives is available if required.
The course is a fully interactive, media-led experience involving electronic voting, video, presentation and discussion and lasts about 3 hours in total.
Anti-social behaviour includes:
- Noisy behaviour in otherwise quiet neighbourhoods
- Night time noise from houses or gardens, especially between 11.00 pm and 7.00 am
- Threatening, drunken or 'yobbish' behaviour
- Vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting
