Anti-social behaviour targeted by mayor
New moves are under way to tackle the growing problem of anti-social behaviour in the capital, Dublin's lord mayor announced last night.
Councillor Andrew Montague said he was putting together a commission on anti-social behaviour to tackle the growing problem of street thuggery, violence, petty crime, noise, public drinking and drug-taking and other anti-social problems.
"I've had meetings with the Department of Justice and Assistant Garda Commissioner Mick Feehan," he said at the city council's monthly meeting.
He called on fellow councillors to get involved as the new body came on stream, hopefully this autumn.
