This chapter considers the following questions: first, the balance, or, more properly, the relationships between enforcement and support in anti-social behaviour management work; second, the extent to which anti-social behaviour enforcement action is a genuinely ‘last’ resort of community safety practitioners; and third, the position and perspective of the ‘victim’ in anti-social behaviour management work. Here, not least, lies the further question of how we might conceive of the status of ‘victimhood’ in relation to anti-social behaviour. Finally, there are questions about ‘outcomes’ at the level of real neighbourhoods and communities, and the processes and relationships of citizenship (forms of social capital) established and sustained (or not) within them.
