The latest figures, for the 12 months ending September 2009, show that there has been a reduction in the proportion of people with a high level of perceived antisocial behaviour in their local area (down from 17 per cent. to 15 per cent. year on year) and a reduction from 26 per cent. to 25 per cent. of those who perceive problems with drunk and rowdy behaviour.
