Antisocial behaviour describes incidents of crime, nuisance and disorder. These issues can occur over time and can impact your day to day life. Antisocial behaviour includes:
- dog fouling
- threatening and intimidating behaviour
- excessive noise
How to report antisocial behaviour
You should report criminal and general antisocial behaviour to the police on the non-emergency number 101.
Gloucestershire Constabulary also have an online reporting tool for non-urgent antisocial behaviour issues. People are being encouraged to use this instead of calling 101 if appropriate but isn’t intended to replace calling 999 or 101. The new online tool to report antisocial behaviour can be found here: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/ro/report/asb/asb-v3/report-antisocial-behaviour
When the problem is unresolved and ongoing
Antisocial Behaviour (ASB) Case Review
The ASB Case Review gives victims of persistent anti-social behaviour the right to request a multi-agency review of their situation, when a specific threshold is met.
ASB often cannot be defined by a particular type of incident or behaviour, but more on how it can affect a victim, or victims, and their daily life. Whatever form it takes, the behaviour will cause, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm, or distress to a person. However ASB experienced within a residential setting has a lower threshold of ‘nuisance and annoyance’.
Tackling ASB is the responsibility of multiple agencies, including the police and local authority who each lead on certain types of behaviours. However, whatever the situation, it is best practice for all agencies to work collaboratively to solve the problem.
The aim of the ASB Case Review is to encourage a joined-up, problem-solving and victim-centred approach to the resolution of serious and persistent ASB problems. It enables agencies to review the situation and establish if there are any further actions that can be taken to bring a case to a satisfactory resolution.
The threshold to request a review is:
- Three or more reported incidents of ASB, including hate incidents, to relevant agencies (i.e. the police/council/housing/health)
- The incidents occurred on separate occasions, within a six month period
- The ASB is an ongoing issue
