dogMuch of the content based on the new Anti-social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014, which came into force on Monday 20 October, has now been uploaded on RIAMS. This includes three new procedures in the Enforcement module: Community Trigger, Public Spaces Protection Order and Closure Power, and Public Spaces Protection Order Dog Control in Environmental Crime.
