In January 2003, Casey became head of the ASBU at the Home Office. Introduced in 1998, an Anti-Social Behaviour Order is a civil order made against a person who has been shown, on the balance of evidence, to have engaged in anti-social behaviour.
In November 2000, the government launched the RSU-led “Change a Life” campaign, which encouraged people to give money to homelessness charities instead of to beggars, following research suggesting that 86 percent of beggars used drugs. Casey said giving money to beggars was “misplaced goodwill”. The donations hotline set up as part of the campaign was closed in March 2002, having collected £10,000, despite advertising spending of £240,000. The RSU achieved its target in November 2001, several months before the deadline, but allegations were made that they had used underhand tactics; Casey responded that they were false. With her work at the RSU finished, she became director of the newly created Homelessness Directorate.

Following the 1997 election, the Labour government in December that year created the Social Exclusion Unit (SEU), which had tackling rough sleeping as one of its priorities. In April 1999 the RSU was created and Casey appointed by Prime Minister Tony Blair as its head, referred to in the media as the “homelessness czar”. With an eventual budget of £200 million, the RSU’s aim was to reduce the number of rough sleepers in England by two-thirds by April 2002. The RSU published its strategy in December 1999.
In December 2007, the task force was closed down, and Casey moved to another job involving community policing. Her review of “Engaging Communities in Fighting Crime” was published in 2008, being based largely on her contact with the public.
The Respect Action Plan, launched in January 2006, was designed to deal with anti-social behaviour and problematic young people and families.

Facts & Trivia
Ranked on the list of most popular Civil Servant. Also ranked in the elit list of famous celebrity born in United Kingdom.
Casey triggered some controversy in November 1999 when she said the activities of some charities had the effect of keeping homeless people on the streets: “With soup runs and other kinds of charity help, well-meaning people are spending money servicing the problem on the streets and keeping it there. Even The Big Issue is perpetuating the problem.” The editor of The Big Issue criticised her comments.
In September 2005, Casey was appointed head of the Respect Task Force as part of Blair’s “respect agenda”, becoming known as the “respect czar”.
During an after-dinner speech at a private (Home Office/ACPO) function in June 2005, she said that ministers would perform better if they were “pissed” and, “doing things sober is no way to get things done”. She added, “There is an obsession with evidence-based policy. If No 10 says bloody evidence-based policy to me one more time I’ll deck them one and probably get unemployed.” The remarks, defended by the Prime Minister’s office, led to an inquiry, after which Casey, having apologised, remained at her position.
