Measures introduced to tackle anti-social behaviour have been described as crime control through the coming together of social housing management and policing. This suggests that a new form of social control is coming into effect. Taking Cohen's classic analysis of social control, it is possible to discern the extent to which the control of anti-social behaviour is characterised by a blurring of boundaries, behaviourism, mesh-thinning and net-widening. This leads to a discussion of the inclusionary and exclusionary aspects of anti-social behaviour as a phenomenon which is linked to the changing constellation of ‘care and control’ professions.
