ACPO comment on gang injunctions

16 Dec 2010

ACPO responds to the Government's announcement for new civil injunction to prevent gang-related violence

ACPO lead on gangs Deputy Assistant Commissioner Sue Akers said:

“Gang-related violence causes huge fear and harm in our communities. The introduction of gang injunction provides police and local authorities with another option when considering how to best tackle gang issues.

“ACPO would encourage officers involved in addressing gang violence to consider the use of injunctions alongside all the other tactical responses.”
