Types of anti-social behaviour
Anti-social behaviour is anything which causes (or is likely to cause) harassment, alarm or distress to one or more people not in the same household. It can include:
- abandoned vehicles
- animal-related problems
- drinking in the street
- drug or substance misuse and dealing
- hoax calls
- inappropriate vehicle use
- noise nuisance
- nuisance and rowdy behaviour
- prostitution and kerb crawling
- intimidation and harassment
Isolated incidents may not seem serious, but continued anti-social behaviour can have a devastating impact for people affected by it.
If the behaviour is ongoing, keep a record of the events, including times, dates and how the behaviour is making you feel. This will help us to understand the issues and take action. Remember you can contact us with confidence, in confidence.
