Crime that happens in your neighbourhood can have a big impact on your quality of life. It is important to know when something is classed as criminal activity and how you can protect yourself.
What is it?
ASB comes in a number of forms, but it is broadly defined as any persistent activity that is considered selfish, intimidating or contributes to the deterioration of your community.
The following is classed as anti-social behaviour:
- Nuisance neighbours
- Intimidating groups taking over public places
- Vandalism, graffiti, fly-tipping
- People taking or buying drugs on the street
- People dumping rubbish or abandoning cars
- Anti-social drinking
- Excessive noise
- Threatening behaviour or verbal abuse, including racism
- Inconsiderate and dangerous driving
Street robbery or 'mugging' is more likely to happen in quiet or dark areas. If someone tries to take something from you by force, it may be best to give it to them rather than put yourself in danger.
What can you do?
If you want to take action about anti-social behaviour you should first try to find out who is responsible for the behaviour. It is also important to establish whether the behaviour is deliberate or unintentional. If you are victim of anti-social behaviour you should contact your community support officer to find out the best way to resolve any conflict.
