Who deals with the anti-social behaviour report?
Both the neighbourhood and community safety teams deal with anti-social behaviour reports. The team that contacts you about your report will depend on the nature of the anti-social behaviour.
The Community Trigger gives victims of anti-social behaviour the right to request a review of their case, if their concerns have not been dealt with, or acted upon, and organisations have been unable to resolve the serious persistent, or targeted, anti-social behaviour successfully.
