We’ve moved a step closer to being granted greater powers to prevent antisocial behaviour on the transport network.

An application to extend powers under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 is due to be debated in the House of Lords today (Wednesday 12 December).

The application was initially made to the Home Secretary in November 2017 by Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham. The request was approved, subject to parliamentary approval, and is due to be debated today. The process is expected to complete in the New Year.

Should the request be accepted, the powers would complement the work currently being done under the TravelSafe Partnership - a multi-agency approach to tackling crime and anti-social behaviour on Greater Manchester transport.
