This chapter identifies key characteristics of the evolving governance of youth disorder in Great Britain, including a focus on youth activities in public space, new legal mechanisms for regulating conduct in residential areas, and reformed models of policing. It compares the evolution of two local initiatives specifically aimed at reducing antisocial behaviour among groups of young people. These are the Dispersal Order implemented in Manchester, England, and a social-landlord-funded additional policing initiative in Glasgow, Scotland. The chapter suggests that these initiatives provide insights into the ways in which the police, as statutory agent, has become involved in the management of disorder in residential neighbourhoods and in making use of additional powers at their disposal.
