Anti-social behaviour – Community Trigger

What is a community trigger?

The Community Trigger was introduced by the Anti Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014 and went live on 20 October 2014. It gives victims of anti social behaviour (ASB) the right to request a review of their ASB complaints and brings agencies such as the local council, police and housing providers, together to take a joined up, problem solving approach to find a solution.

Who can use it?

Anyone who is experiencing anti social behaviour, or a person acting on their behalf, can use the Community Trigger if:

  • The victim has reported three times in the last six months separate, but related, anti social incidents to agencies and the problem persists
