What you can do to help

How you can help to tackle anti-social behaviour

Working with our partners, we have made tackling anti-social behaviour a priority for all of our staff. As a result, the number of reported incidents has fallen considerably in the last five years.

However, we all have a part to play in reducing anti-social behaviour. Here are a few things you can also do to help prevent problems occurring in your neighbourhood.

  • Report it. It may prevent it happening again. Also, evidence from victims and witnesses is very important as it shows the distress anti-social behaviour can cause and the damage it can do to a community.
  • Join a neighbourhood watch scheme. Neighbourhood watch schemes are about people working together to keep their community safe.
  • Become a Special constable. Special constables are volunteer police officers who work at the heart of their local community.

By taking an active role, you can really help make a difference.
