Antisocial behaviour - new proposals
In this video, crime prevention minister James Brokenshire explains the government's new plans to tackle antisocial behaviour, including 'community triggers' that would compel local agencies to investigate antisocial behaviour if it has been repeatedly complained about.
Reporting antisocial behaviour
If you are harassed or victimised, if antisocial behaviour is affecting your quality of life or making you fear for your safety or the safety of others, contact your local antisocial behaviour team, neighbourhood policing team or local police station directly and file a complaint. If the situation is an emergency (if someone's life or health is threatened) call 999.
All complaints are treated as confidential under the Data Protection Act, so you don't have to worry about your identity being revealed.
Find out more about how to report antisocial behaviour (new window) on the Directgov website.
