Security Interests in the Criminal Law

Security Interests in the Criminal Law

(p.163) 8 Security Interests in the Criminal Law
The Insecurity State

Peter Ramsay

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the protection of subjective security interests in the criminal law of an earlier period before the Anti-Social Behaviour Order. It considers vagrancy, nuisance, the bind over, threat offences, public order offences, and possession offences. The review of the law is not meant to cover every relevant power but rather to argue that while subjective security interests were protected in different ways, this protection remained piecemeal, implicit or justified in a traditional moralized language quite different from the later more explicit and systematic development of a liability for failure to reassure.

Keywords:   vagrancy, public nuisance, Statutory Nuisance Abatement Notice, bind over, threat offences, drugs possession, firearms possession
