Gordon Brown will this week promise new action to crack down on yobbish and unruly behaviour as main parties continue to gear up for the forthcoming general election campaign.
In a keynote speech, the Prime Minister is expected to say that there is "no place and no excuse" for anti-social conduct in "my Britain".
Aides said that it would be followed by a ministerial summit on Tuesday to look at specific measures to tackle the disorder that continues to blight many communities.
Among the proposals on the table will include plans to speed up the process of issuing anti-social behaviour orders (Asbos) with tougher penalties if they are breached.
Mr Brown is also said to want Home Secretary Alan Johnson to look at ways to move forward quickly on a proposal in the Government's police white paper to provide redress for victims if they do not get support from the police or local authority.
It would mean that repeat victims of anti-social behaviour could be entitled to legal support to enable them to take action through the courts such as seeking an injunction.
In his speech, Mr Brown will emphasise that overall crime levels are down by a third since Labour came to power in 1997. At the same time he will say that "statistics are irrelevant" for people living in fear of abuse or assault.
"We were the first to recognise the damage that antisocial behaviour was doing to the soul of our communities. We were the first to address it. We were first to legislate to tackle it. And we will be the first to crack it," he is expected to say according to advance extracts released by aides.
"Because I know that while we've made real progress, people are still worried about anti social behaviour. And if they are worried, I'm worried. So that means stepping up our fight against those who terrorise our neighbourhoods; intimidate decent people on our streets; and seek to make us fearful in our own homes.
"Let me tell you there is no place and no excuse for those who perpetrate antisocial behaviour in my Britain."
