Police officers will join with council officers, residents' groups and representatives from the Home Office to discuss an array of issues including: nuisance neighbours, environmental crime, obtaining anti-social behaviour orders and partnership working.
Andy Solomon, anti-social behaviour network manager for Ipswich, said: “Ipswich is an action area and is recognised as a part of the country that is doing things to tackle anti-social behaviour.
“This is an opportunity to get people together from various different walks of life to look at different ways to tackle anti-social behaviour problems and also to take on board various aspects of the government's new Respect Action Plan and to see how that will develop in the future.”
