Anti-social behaviour

Anti social behaviour can be defined as any act that causes alarm, distress or harassment to someone outside of the immediate family or household. Examples of what can be classified as anti social behaviour includes such things as vandalism, graffiti, verbal abuse, threats, continual noise nuisance, intimidation and harassment or drunken behaviour.

On 23 March 2015 new powers came into force under The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 to enable the police, local councils, social landlords and other agencies to better tackle anti-social behaviour, and enable victims and communities to feel safe in their own homes and neighbourhoods.

If you feel that you are being affected by such problems, then contact your police Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101. If it is an emergency and requires a police response please dial 999. Additional information on anti-social behaviour is available from the ASB Hub.
