Today is the first day of Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) awareness week, running from Monday 3rd July to Sunday 9th July 2023.
ASB is not a low-level offence and devastates the lives of victims and communities and can be a precursor to more serious crime. It can result in a range of negative emotional, behavioural, social, health and financial impacts.
This year’s theme is “know your rights”.
Today we are raising awareness of the ASB case review process. Victims of ASB have the right to request a review of their case of ongoing ASB if they have reported 3 separate incidents of ASB within 6 months. The Case review demands that Police, Local Authority, and other relevant agencies (such as housing providers) come together to find a solution to stop ASB.
For further information on ASB case reviews please see click on the following links:
Finally, we are very keen to understand local views and concerns with regards to ASB. We invite you to complete the below short survey on ASB which will enable local officers to formulate up and coming targeted activity in local communities.
If you are the victim or have witnessed antisocial behaviour, then please report it to us. If there is a danger to life or a crime in progress then this should be reported on 999.
