What is it?
Since October 2014, legislation has allowed victims of Antisocial Behaviour to request a review of how their case has been handled.
The Antisocial Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, requires statutory agencies, including Trent & Dove Housing, to work together to tackle ASB.
The law will give more powers to Police, Local Authorities, the NHS and social landlords to deal with Antisocial Behaviour more effectively and require positive action from offenders to help modify their behaviour.
By activating a ‘Community Trigger,’ any member of the public can have a review into instances of Antisocial Behaviour if they don’t feel that they have had a satisfactory response.
In order to do this you must:
- Have reported Antisocial Behaviour a minimum of 3 times within 6 months.
- The ‘Community Trigger ‘ may only be activated within 1 month of the last reported incident of ASB.
- You must evidence that you have reported this behaviour to agencies.
For more information on activating a ‘Community Trigger’, please contact us directly.
